Ant research

Hi everyone!
Our ants research has begun!
We started by telling each other our stories about ants

Then we talked about what we could do as scientists to learn more about ants
A few days later we began our research by finding out answers to the question - what is unique about ant anatomy and creating a class poster...
Keep reading the blog to find out what we learn about next!

Class Open House

Hi everyone!
Our last Special Person was Harper!  She told about jumping very high on a trampoline - she almost touched the ceiling - but don't worry - she was wearing a harness!

Thank you for visiting to day - it was a pleasure to see you all again!  Enjoy some pictures from our Open House!

(it may be hard to believe, but we CAN get 50 people in this room!!)  :)
