Grasshoppers are insects, and go through egg and larval stages before becoming an adult. A young grasshopper is called a nymph, and the nymph stage lasts for about a month. After that they are considered adults, and the average lifespan is about 50 days.
Physical Fun: Grasshopper jump. Grasshoppers can jump really high and far. Go outside and see how high and how far you can jump. Take a tape measure with you and measure the distance!
