I am a Cicada

I am a Cicada
By Matilda

I am Cicada,
I lay eggs.
I can fly and I drop from my nest immediately.
I have a male friend.
He has a drum on his abdomen; this is how he found me.
My babies are called nymphs.
I live underground for 17 years and I only come out when it’s time to have babies.


  1. Wow! They live underground for 17 years. That is amazing. Informative writing Matilda. Nicola

  2. This is very interesting Matilda and what beautiful art work
