May 9th: Walking Field Trip!
- Tomorrow, during class, we are walking briskly to the Tolt River to discover insects. No permission slip needed, as this is a “local walking trip.”
- Leave the RLC: 2:05 pm, Return to the RLC: 3:10 pm. You will be back in time to ride the regular bus home, or regular parent pick up times.
- Wear good walking shoes.
- Parents – would you like to walk with us? If you have a Volunteer Application filed with the Riverview School District, we would love to have you! Be here at 2:00 pm. Email me to let me know you’re coming with us!
- Homework Due – Don’t forget to bring your choice of local insect choice for your personal study tomorrow.
March 7th: Mealworms
We launched our in-class study of mealworms today! Each student set up their own glass jar of mealworms to observe as they grow through their life-stages. Did you miss your class? See Mrs. Schutte to set up your own jar!
Optional Capture Activity: Go outside and carefully capture an insect to bring to class. We will examine it and then release it again! Can’t find an insect this week – it’s okay! It’s optional. You can keep looking and find something another week!
