Description

The Life Cycle of a Grasshopper Activity illustrates this insect’s lifecycle, which is known as an incomplete metamorphosis. The female lays fertilised eggs in the soil in a pod. Up to 10 months later, nymphs hatch from the eggs.  As they grow into a juvenile grasshopper, they moult their exoskeleton several times, until they mature into adults.

This unique material takes the Child from the verbal story; developing the sensorial (concrete) understanding of the material with the objects; to the abstract.  The incorporation of images and labels helps develop the Child’s reading skills.  This material adheres to the Montessori Animal Kingdom colour coding system, grasshoppers are invertebrates, and coded yellow.

    the activity explains the process so clearly.the cards are professional.

  2. Maxine Hardy (verified owner)

    The story of the lifecycle of the grasshopper is a very interesting story. This activity explains it so that the child can easily understand it and that there is meaning. I am impressed by the completeness of the activity, if that makes sense.
