    Happy Spring!     Welcome Arthropods! Hoping for some beautiful spring weather this week! Encourage your children to get outside! Let them discover and explore this week! Take pictures of spider webs and send them to me. Catch an insect, centipede or millipede (no worms, slugs, or snails, those are the following week) and bring to show and tell on Friday. Habitats are fun additions as well. Outdoor observation is the goal this week. If you’re having a hard time finding insects, look under wet leaves and rotting logs. Or, go out at night and turn flashlights on. I’ve attached a sheet to fill out about the Arthropod you find.…

So, if you haven’t already, you should hang your chrysalis in a safe place. If you don’t have a butterfly house, then a jar with holes, or an insect box from dollar tree should work, depending on how long you’d like to keep it. For this week, read the first part of the Arthropod chapter (page 229-238) if you…
