More insects ideas!

Hi everyone! We are continuing to add to our understanding of insects..this week we learned that the mealworms were the larva of darkling beetles! So we explored the mealworm life cycle.
We also learned more about how insects protect themselves from predators - we researched ideas then created a poster and project.








Earlier in the week we made some cute turkey art using different kinds of lines...


We have had a busy week and are working hard to wrap up our final insect projects. See you soon!

A quick update

We had another busy week learning about insects enjoying this wonderful fall weather.
We also had a fantastic time with our third grade buddy classroom who taught us how to fold "fortune tellers".  They were so patient and kind - it was a magical moment.
Enjoy some pictures - the kids were having a great time with the fall leaves, proving that some of the best things in life are free....
