Exciting news boys and girls! We have kindly been given some stick insects, which we will keep as our class pets! We have 4 Indian stick insects which if you would like to, and promise to be gentle, can hold! I find their walking very funny because they look like they are marching! At the moment they are only quite small but they will grow to be 8-10cm long.
Below are some links to watch a stick insect walking through the jungle and some stories about stick insects that we can read together when we are back. I have all of these books ready and waiting!
I wonder if you can think of some names for them? Can you write a name tag for them? Maybe you could even make a card or draw a picture to welcome them into our class. Don't forget to write your name on too so the stick insects know it is from you.
I hope you are as excited as I am!
