On Wednesday, our class received a special delivery… a praying mantis egg case! We are studying animal life cycles and have learned about birds and insects so far. In a few weeks, we could have about 100 nymphs emerge! (Don’t worry, they will be contained in a special mantis house.) 🙂 After they hatch, we plan on releasing them in the wetlands by our school. We are looking forward to seeing these interesting insects soon! For more information about the praying mantis, follow this link: Praying Mantis – National Geographic.
