Activity Overview

Storyboards are great for research purposes. Students can explore crickets and compile research about the insects. They can find information using textual evidence, the internet, or in other books. Then they can add the research they compiled into the cells and use our site, Photos For Class, to find safe, real images of crickets to help spruce up their storyboard.

Here is an example:

  • Crickets can be black, red, brown, or green in color.
  • Crickets have one pair of one-inch long antennas, called feelers. Antennas can detect movement of the prey and facilitate finding of food.
  • Even though crickets have wings, they do not fly. Crickets can jump or travel short distances by producing jerky moves.
