We have new stick bugs for pets in our classroom! We got the fish tank first. We researched stick bugs before we got them. They eat lettuce. They need sticks to climb. They sleep all day so they are nocturnal. We collected sticks from our playground and swiss chard from our garden for their home. Judy gave us the bugs. They grew. We have six stick bugs. Some are small and some are big. We have to change their food every couple of days. We spray their food with water so they can get water.
