Cicada Skins

Blake found some really cool cicada skins on his fence at home. He shared his bounty with the class this morning. He also showed us how they can cling to anything!

We were surprised to find that these things were not dead cicadas but actually the skins they leave behind once their bodies have grown too big for them.

We compared this to our own skins, where we came to realise that our skin stretches to fit our size as we grow, unlike the cicada skins!
