This activity can be done over a couple of days (maybe one depending on time and age of the students) using computers. There are specific questions about the periodic cicada that will address it's life cycle, habitat, and adaptations. There are two pages of questions and one page where students are expected to draw a picture of the cicada's life cycle. The websites for student research are also included on the last page. Perfect for an animal study unit on habitats, adaptations, life cycles, insects or just to learn about cicadas!
