The eighth grade students in Riverhead Middle School’s Living Environment classes are currently engaged in lessons surrounding live crickets. Teacher Ann Priapi kicked off the unit by asking her students to simply observe the crickets and make note of what they saw, smelled and heard. 

“The goal is to get them to think like scientists,” she explained. 

The ecology unit will continue with information on the insects’ habitats, life cycles, eating habits and more.
