The Incredible Cicada

 

For the first time since 2003, large parts of the Eastern USA will resound to the sound of cicadas. These incredible insects only emerge from their underground homes once every 17 years to complete possibly the most unusual lifecycle on Earth. They were even heard during the US Masters golf tournament (2003) whilst the golfers were playing their rounds. 

Can you find out more information about the cicada?

Why do you think cicadas have evolved to only appear every 17 years?

Can you find any other species with a bizarre life cycle?

RE Friday 27th March

 

Today I would like you to research the following Bible stories:

Praying on the Mount of Olives, arrest, four trials (Jewish concil, Pilate, Herod and Pilate again), the crucifixion and the burial in the tomb. Use Luke's Gospel chapters 20-23 to help you with this. I would then like you to vote on whether you think the evidence suggests this was either part of God’s plan or a consequence of events that happened during the week, e.g. did Judas betray
Jesus as part of God’s plan or because he was jealous and wanted the bribe? Did Jesus spend time in the Temple teaching because it was part of God’s plan or because the people asked him to? Did Jesus get angry in the Temple because he was afraid of what was about to happen or because he was angry with the traders for cheating people? Or was Judas’ betrayal also part of God’s plan for Jesus?
