Book Description

March 1 2007 Insect World
Watch out for these masters of defense--stick insects! Their secret weapon is being able to hide in plain sight. To protect themselves from predators, they have developed long, narrow bodies. They blend right in to the branches they live on. Some stick insects even have extra growths that look like leaves for more camouflage. Stick insects also protect themselves by being most active at night when it is even harder to see them. They escape from predators by dropping to the forest floor, where they look like fallen sticks and leaves. In this exciting book, you can learn what makes stick insects similar to and different from other insects. Close-up photographs and diagrams reveal extraordinary details about stick insects' bodies, both inside and out. And you can perform activities that help you observe how stick insects live and how they hide by keeping still. Learn more about this exciting member of nature's fascinating Insect World!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stick Insects: Masters of Defense Feb. 21 2009
By Michelle Buggia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
Grade 3-5- This book provides many wonderful pieces of information about animal adaptations. The begining of the book gives the reader basic knowledge of the development of insects. It then discusses specific insects and their individual adapations. The book is full of beautiful photography that supports it's information. It also has a glossary that defines key vocabulary, as well as a list of web sites that would provide you with more detailed information. At the end of the book their is an activity that teaches you how to create a habitat for a stick insect. Great book for teaching and independent learning.
