We have seen more than a few Praying Mantis' here lately, so the children thought it would be a great NATURE JOURNAL subject this week. They sketched them and read about them a bit. Actually we learned a lot of really interesting information about them.
So, as the project progressed the children also wanted to include some "photos" of Mantis' on their Nature Journal pages. Being a GOOD Mom (and teacher), I helped them do internet search .... Praying Mantis' are FASCINATING creatures and there are many many many images available .... until ... well, until I found THIS photo (above).
This is the stuff that makes nightmares. HA !! Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww (yuck).
