The other day we made Leaf Men. To make them you get lots of colorful leaves (get more then you think you will need), and nuts, flowers, seed pods, and more. Then you make a person or a animal or a plant or other things. Then, take a picture!
Today we had a class about amphibians. There was a salamander named Dino. He is a Tiger salamander. Dino has yellow spots with a light yellow green belly. He can grow to be 13 inches long.
Tiger salamanders live in North America, but are harder to find in some places, like the Appalachian Mountains! Tiger salamanders live in wet places underground.
A Tiger salamander acts like Mark and eats often. Unlike Mark, they like worms, mice and insects.
I like salamanders. I might look for some in our back woods!
Today I was doing drawing and in my book I was told to do a “Woolly Woo” (dust bunny). It was fun. Megan did one too.
Something is dying…
What is it…
Do you know?
Answer: Cells! Tail cells that is!
Our tadpole (the one with front legs) is almost a full grown frog!
P.S. Since he still has a tail stub, I think he is considered a froglet now.
Soon we will have to let him go, because a frog needs to find its fortune 🙂 If we keep him here, he may die. We might not be able to find him enough flies.
It was fun raising him. I will enjoy watching the other one for awhile. I hope to raise more later!
About a week ago……..
We got the most
Cuddly, cute, nice, furry, and pretty pets…
Can you guess what they are?
We are raising them for Science. The friend who gave them to us said they are either bullfrogs or green frogs. When we got them the big one had back legs, but no front legs. The little one still does not have legs.
His tail will start to shrink and then he will need a rock to sit on. Then he will go out and seek his fortune!
P.S. Do frogs have fortunes?
