We missed Lisa today, but like Elle said, “Today was a special day because we had Caroline.” Before our day got too busy, some friends joined Caroline to gather some books, hoping one would help us identify the specimen we found on the playground. Our mystery creature continues to be …mysterious. In the process of observing the creature…it disappeared! Friends then drew the creature from memory, before spotting it again. The children believe the creature is a crab, a lobster, a seahorse or a snake.
We decided to try to list things we notice about all of those creatures and compare it to our creature. We noticed crabs have round bodies, that clue led Sam to believe it is actually a lobster because lobsters have long bodies while crabs have round bodies. Our little creature was losing many of its tiny legs and the children used tweezers to try to collect them all. Jack said, “I think it has 104 legs.” The legs seemed like they would help us figure out what we were looking at. They counted six to eight legs on illustrations of crabs from our book and they know that snakes have no legs, but friends are not convinced. We will continue to investigate next week and see if we can figure it out!
We know we’re making cupcakes cause we have sprinkles! Elle
Our last field trip of the year is going to bring us back to Nonno’s garden on Monday. It’s nice to bring something when we visit a friend so today we made no bake peanut butter balls to bring with us on Monday. The children mixed the ingredients and rolled out little peanut butter balls, then covered them in sprinkles chocolate chips and pretzels. We can’t wait to see Nonno next week!
Louise: I want to be baked!
Leigh: But that would be sad because you’re in the oven. And you wouldn’t get to see Nonno.
Rachael: Should we put anything else into our dough?
