Camo, an award, and a giveaway count down.

Lots to talk about tonight, so go grab yourself a Shamrock Shake (Holly ;)) and enjoy the show... err... uh... blog :)


I did this activity with my Kinders last week.  We were learning about camouflage and how animals use camo to stay safe.  I put lots of green paper shreds in a bucket with small green butterflies cut out of green-ish wallpaper.  The kids had to dig through the green scraps to find their butterfly.  When they found their butterfly, they had to take some green scraps and make a bush in their science journal and glue their butterfly on the bush.  I'll let the pictures do the talking:
