STICK BUGS CAME TO SCHOOL!

Hi kids!

We received a very special visit last week...Two brothers brought to the school two stick bugs, to show children how cool these insects are!

Maya, our English assistant, visited all the classrooms of the school to show these funny stick bugs!

Thank you MAYA!

Here you have some pics:








And now some extra information about this insect:


The stick bug is a type of insect that actually looks like a stick. It uses camouflage to look like the sticks or branches of the trees where it lives. There is also a leaf type bug that looks like leaves. Together they make up the order of insects called Phasmatodea. There are around 3,000 species of insects in this order. 

And some Fun Facts about Stick bugs !
