Life Cycle of a Praying Mantis Activity

This is a predator at heart!  He looks ungainly, however, this is one of the fastest assassins of the insect world, holding the pray between his grasping front legs.  They grow up to 12cm in length and are carnivores, eating small mice, birds and frogs.

Description

The Life Cycle of a Praying Mantis Activity goes beyond the standard life cycle offering.  This unique material takes the Child from the verbal story; developing the sensorial (concrete) understanding of the material with the objects (sold separately); to the abstract, with the incorporation of images and labels.  Colour-coded material, coded according to the Montessori Animal Kingdom.  The praying mantis’ are Insects, and coded yellow.  They are formidable predators, attacking others larger than themselves, like a tarantula.
