Our classroom pets – mealworms!!

We have had the mealworms in our classroom since the last week of May.  They are insects because they have six legs and are invertebrates.  They actually are not “worms”, but the larvae stage of a darkling beetle.  These little critters like the dark, so we keep them in a jar with oatmeal in the filing cabinet and feed them once a week for moisture.  So far they have really enjoyed apples and carrots!  It’s so amazing that they will go through a complete metamorphisis before summer holidays.

Ellis Bird Farm – June 2012

3L enjoyed a fun, educational day at the Ellis Bird Farm.  We went Pond Dipping, built Chickadee Houses, saw some goats and sheep, and did many more activities.

Do you remember what was unique about a beaver’s eyes?

What kind of bird’s wingspan are you?
