In this research lab, students will observe actual crickets. They will discuss questions posed to them on their lab directions sheet, and then record their predictions on the recording sheet. Students will then conduct a research investigation, using either the links provided or the informational text included, to determine whether or not their predictions were correct. They will record their answers on their lab sheet. In the resources, you will find:
A direction sheet for students
A lab recording sheet for both the predictions and the research-based conclusions
Informational text (written by me) about crickets
Everything is a word document so that you may change it as needed. This can be done independently by students in grades 3-4, but whole-group with K-1.
