Stage One Cicada Exploration

Stage One have continued their exploration of living things with a lesson all about cicadas. We have discovered so many interesting facts about these amazing creatures. Did you know that they live underground as baby wingless nymphs for up to 17 years? When they hatch as adults with wings, they burrow out of the ground in the night, shed their skin and begin their life above ground that only last 2-4 weeks! We also spent time creating beautiful cicada artworks using bark and leaf rubbing, watercolour paints and finished off with collage cicadas.
