St. Pattys Day Bugs!
This week, the kiddies have been loving collecting bugs in the garden, and I've enjoyed watching their faces light up as they scramble to catch rolly pollies in the compost. Under a log, we found a fat grub, which excited some, and grossed out others.
Our new visitor, the caterpillar, has been the most popular bug in the garden. They're pretty entertaining to watch as they munch away on leaves. We can't wait until they turn into beautiful Monarch butterflies!
The new outdoor chalkboard is finally finished, with help from Anna and Cam. So far, it has been a great visual for our bug lesson this week. The three main things that bugs do in our garden: decompose, pollinate, protect.
Until next time,
