Traveler's Missisquoi Wildlife Refuge Field Trip
Travelers went and explored at the Missisquoi Wildlife Refuge. We went on a nature walk and did a scavenger hunt. We also caught and learned about Macroinvertebrates. We identified different kinds of migratory birds in the refuge.
Investigators Fun FridayThe First Grade Investigators used apples that we got from our Allenholm Farm field trip last week to make "apple smile" snacks and apple print pictures on Fun Friday!
Mrs. Walsh's students hatched and released painted lady butterflies to boost the local pollinator population.
The lifespan of a Painted Lady Butterfly is 2–4 weeks.
Butterflies are very active during the day and visit a variety of wildflowers. Butterflies are less efficient than bees at moving pollen between plants. Highly perched on their long thin legs, they do not pick up much pollen on their bodies and lack specialized structures for collecting it.
Butterflies probe for nectar, their flight fuel, and typically favor the flat, clustered flowers that provide a landing pad and abundant rewards.
Kindergarten Students Prepared for the Monarch Butterfly Migration
Some students made salsa from garden produce while others made butterfly hats 10-6-2016. The Monarch Butterfly migration from the USA to Mexico took place a day later (10-7-2016).
For Snacks today we have Strawberries
The strawberry plant is a perennial. This means if you plant one now, it will come back next year and the following and the year after that. It may not bear fruit immediately, but once it does, it will remain productive for about five years.
To store fresh strawberries, wash them and cut the stem away. However, if you plan to keep them in the fridge for a few days, wait until before you eat them to clean them. Rinsing them speeds up spoiling.
Students may take two fruit servings with each meal. They must take at least one.
