There is nothing more irritating than the chirp of crickets. This cricket puzzle will show you that the sounds (called stridulating) are actually created from the crickets’ wing. The upper wing is covered with teeth-like ridges. When the upper wing is rubbed against the lower wind, the sound is generated. Because crickets prefer warmer weather, they chirp more often and louder during the summer months.
This is the type of interesting information that children love to learn about. As they make they make the puzzle, encourage them to think about who or what crickets are and what are they eat and where they live and sleep.
