Students discover the social behaviors of male house crickets by employing the techniques ethologists use in studying animal behavior. They observe as multiple male house crickets establish territories in a mini plastic terrarium and interact with intruding male and female crickets. Students learn how male house crickets interact differently with male and female crickets, and then construct an ethogram to quantify behavioral data. Materials are sufficient for 32 students working in groups of 4.

Living Organism Care Information

 
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly good, some tweaks needed The kit comes with one large terrarium and 8 small ones, cricket food, a sponge for water, and an egg carton for general set up, and these are excellent. The issues are with the plastic cups and cloths for containing individuals during the trials - there is no way to get a cricket in the cup and put a cloth over it with a rubber band AND have the cloth actually held by that rubber band - I simply placed the cups upside down on index cards. Also, more than half the crickets were dead, leaving literally just enough to run four trials of the experiment at a time.
