We had a visit from #24's pet ants!!

They are harvester ants. They eat that blue goo. They don't have names. :-) although the discussion of names for them was interesting.

Aren't they cool? Apparently they will bite if they get out.

Really cool tunnels.

These look like the easiest pets to own!!

Our class won the Read Across America trophy, for 2nd grade!

Isn't it a pretty trophy? The kids worked hard to get that trophy. They read A LOT of pages.

See our wormy friend? We are raising him/her and many of his/her friends. They will transform into something else. The kids made predictions. I know what they will be, but I am not talking!

While walking around Lake Elizabeth yesterday, my friend and I saw this swarm/hive of bees.

After some technical difficulties, my blog is back online!

We had a couple of special science assemblies.

#9, balancing on balloons!

#14, ready to help our science guy.

These girls made their own optical illusion, learned from the science guy.

To celebrate #24's birthday, we had a Mad Science presentation!

The kids dropped marbles into flour to create craters.

Using lots of cool stuff, and dry ice, our scientist made a comet!

It was very cool, especially because it smoked and made noise!

#24 in her birthday science goggles! Thanks for the Mad Science assembly!!
