The end of this week we studied up on wetland habitats which included a video clip, several good books, a couple of art projects and a field trip to a local wetland area. Holly had a favorite art project - creating a turtle. She really took her time on making it just perfect... and perfect I think it is!We talked about many animals and plants that live in various wetlands, warm and cold wetlands and how our local wetland habitats are. Snake Lake was a natural fit for this unit so we headed out for an afternoon of exploration, fun and discovery! Holly found several different kinds of vegetation, foot prints in the mud that appear to have belonged to a raccoon, ducks, turtles, birds of all kinds and many bugs. She had a great time!
