++ SCIENCE with Mrs. Cecil-
We explored food chains and learned ALL living things are dependent on plants! We played “eat or be eaten”, making food webs/chains. We also enjoyed the plants and critters the kids brought in from home! We even saw a wasp’s stinger up close and touched an Easter Garden!
Homework: keep bringing in the critters and plants! Also, ask your students what the closest cousin to a “pill bug/rollie-pollie.”
