Wow and cool were some of the comments we heard this morning as we began our day with a visit from Ms. Pavlicek of the science center! We have begun our study of animal families, and Ms. P was kind enough to bring some creepy crawlies to spend some time in our classroom. Our visitors include Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches, a Tarantula named Hairy-ette and Twitch, the Cornsnake, a farmer's best friend.
In addition to learning about their habitats and diets, we discusses the various animal families. We also learned that we are animals in the mammal family. We are keeping our fingers crossed that Mister Bones the skeleton will be visiting us later this month when we learn about our bodies.
