Synopsis

The Cricket Chronicles presents an extensive integrated unit of study focused on that familiar insect-the cricket. Teachers are given a complete guide and reproducible worksheets for elementary and middle school students. With more than 30 different activities on crickets, students learn science content and skills including: * Taxonomy * Anatomy * Ecology * Marking and recapturing techniques for estimating population size * Reading biological distribution maps * Caring for living organisms in the classroom Many activities involve hands-on science investigations; others incorporate reading, writing, and using graphic organizers to compare crickets to kids and other insects. This book includes learning logs to help students complete all activities and assist the teacher in assessment. Technological applications are also included such as cricket songs, which can be downloaded and played in the classroom. Everything a teacher needs to know or do to successfully teach this unit is covered in The Cricket Chronicles, which is designed for classrooms of any size and is an original and fun alternative to the typical science curriculum.
