Sci Fri: Ant Observation


We could have put together an Ant Farm as planned, but this impromptu version worked just as well.
Not to mention, the addition of eggs.

Word Wednesday: Ant Art


Tape resist for Word Wednesday.


If I were as small as a little black ant
I would do things that big people can't.
I would sit on a leaf, take a bath in a rose
I would ride on a bee and tickle it's nose.
I'd walk under a duck, lead a big ant parade
Sleep in a web that a spider had made
If you were as small as a little black ant
What would you do that big people can't?



Word Wednesday: Letter Leaf Scavenger Hunt

What is it?!

 

Stumped?


It's a Puffball!

Daily Doodle: Eclipse




Science Monday: Solar Eclipse


Everyone was disappointed that I didn't plan ahead and buy Solar Eclipse Glasses for the $49 they were going for. Instead, we put together this quick project, which worked out amazingly well.

First we checked out what the image would look like, long before the eclipse.
A perfect circle/sun.

What happened to the birds?

I ran into the house to grab my camera before the eclipse occured. When I came out, there was complete silence in nature, except for the crickets!


The best view from Ontario occured at 2:32pm.
Our perfect circle turned into a sliver of light!!
