Science Thursday: Spring Fever

Hello All,

In science today we talked about spring and what we think of when spring arrives. We talked about animals and plants coming out of hibernation; we talked about renewal and rebirth; about flowers blooming; bees, wasp, and termite nests coming back to life; and all the stuff spring brings. We also talked about how nest building and nests coming back to life was a big part of spring and we sat and looked at a wonderful book Rachel lent me called Animal Architecture by Ingo Arndt, a German wildlife photographer, which is full of photos of wonderful nests built by all different kinds of birds, insects, and mammals. To top it off, since spring is about new plants growing, we planted one sunflower plant per child in our garden. 

Have a great weekend,

Olga
