Description

The Life Cycle of a Grasshopper Activity describes how this insect’s lifecycle, 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, 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.  Colour-coded material, coded according to the Montessori Animal Kingdom.  The grasshoppers are invertebrates, and coded beige.
