The Cricket Chronicles presents an extensive integrated unit of study focused on that familiar insect-the cricket. Teachers are given a complete guide and reproducible worksheets for elementary and middle school students. With more than 30 different activities on crickets, students learn science content and skills including: * Taxonomy * Anatomy * Ecology * Marking and recapturing techniques for estimating population size * Reading biological distribution maps * Caring for living organisms in the classroom Many activities involve hands-on science investigations; others incorporate reading, writing, and using graphic organizers to compare crickets to kids and other insects. This book includes learning logs to help students complete all activities and assist the teacher in assessment. Technological applications are also included such as cricket songs, which can be downloaded and played in the classroom. Everything a teacher needs to know or do to successfully teach this unit is covered in The Cricket Chronicles, which is designed for classrooms of any size and is an original and fun alternative to the typical science curriculum.

MEDIA REVIEWS
My students were engaged and entranced by the crickets themselves, especially the hunt! I found the lessons interactive and invigorating. -- Louise Monroe, Advanced Learners Program (academically gifted) teacher, Guilford County Schools
This unit of study is most appropriate for elementary students. The student activity sheets include simplified essential questions that are important for students to use to guide their learning and for teachers to use to provide a clear focus for the activity. In addition, the activity sheets also include sections on 'What do I need?' and 'What do I do?' as well as response forms. These activity sheets are to be filled out by students as they go through the lessons. At the end of each lesson, the response forms (data tables and questions) can be filled out and used by the teacher as a form of assessment. This is a great way to interest students in real-life science. * NSTA Recommends *
[This book] is a timely book that will reconnect children with nature. The hands-on activities are clearly explained, fun to do, and adaptable to all ages. -- Courtenay Vass, ecology club leader, General Greene School of Science and Technology
