A grasshopper does not actually ‘jump’.  What they do is use their legs as a catapult.  Grasshoppers can both jump; and fly; reaching speeds of 12.8km per hour / (8mph) when flying.  When grasshoppers are in high density areas; affected by environmental changes; they begin to swarm together, and this is when they become known collecively as locusts.

There are over 18,000 species across 6 of the 7 continents. According to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, individual species can produce up to seven distinct types of silk, each with a specialised function.

Based upon the Montessori zoological curriculum, grasshoppers belong to the Arthropoda phylum, and the material is colour-coded with a yellow border around each card.  Combining the simplicity of a 3-part cards set, a booklet; that comprehensively covers detailed descriptions about grasshoppers; and definition cards.  It is aimed at both the 3 to 6, and the 6 to 9 environments.
