A Stick Insect

This morning my dad found a stick insect on our door.

He picked it up and put it in an old ice cream container with gladwrap on top.  He poked holes in the gladwrap with a fork.

I brought it to school and showed just about everybody in the school.  At morning tea Mr F took a photo of it.  I didn’t eat any morning tea because i was too busy with the stick insect.

A boy in another clasroom whacked the insect with his pink hat.  After that it has a broken leg.

After the bell went for the end of morning tea I stuck the stick insect on the tree outside Room 8.

I wonder if he’s still there?  He is!  We just went for a look and he has climbed higher up the tree.

  1. It’s a pity the boy with the pink hat felt he had to whack the stick insect. I wonder- are stick insects able to grow new legs.

  2. Aren’t stick insects awesome. It’s a pity the boy whacked it – I hope it’s still there in the morning.

  3. What a great photo. Stick insects are so interesting. I hope the boy who whacked it has had a think about the consequences. Thank you for sharing your photo.
