Does temperature affect the rate that crickets chirped?

Because they are cold-blooded, I thought that increased temperature would increase all activity; thus chirping rate should increase. My data showed an increase in the chirping rates as temperature increased. I got a low of 10 chirps per minute at 10oC and a high of 25 chirps per minute at 30oC. When I graphed the, results I saw a good linear relationship with good correlation of points to the line.
I can thus accept my hypothesis, that increasing temperature does directly affect chirping rate. Even though I repeated the experiment, there was enough variation that I could have been more accurate with more data. I would like to actually be able to calculate a formula to predict cricket chirping for different temperatures. I also need to use more crickets because I do not know whether chirping rate is unique for each cricket or a common characteristic. Infomation like this is valuable in helping us understand how the environment affects organisms.

(Valuable components here: scientific explanations, good analysis of data, recognition of limitations of the experiment, and showing the importance of the experiment)

The Newtons and friends were taking tea
Beneath the boughs of an apple tree,
When a falling fruit landed on the
Head of the head of the family.
Mrs. Newton cried, 'Well deary me!
That could've caused an injury'.
But clever Isaac alone could see,
The situation's true gravity.
