Abstract: The cicadas are coming. The cicadas are coming. Now is the time to prepare students for the annual emergence of a fascinating insect. The annual emergence of periodical cicadas begins in late spring followed by the yearly emergence of annual cicadas in early to mid summer. Time of emergence varies by climate. But wherever you live, if you are in cicada country, the emergence of cicadas offers easy hands-on science lessons.
