6 Silent but Deadly Animals

At today’s after-school program, our students learned about some stealthy animals that were deadly by jaws, claws or poison. In fact, most already guessed at what animals would fit in this category. They learned about the Poison Dart Frog, Caiman, Leopard, Great Horned Owl, Tarantula, and Puffed Adder. They were only stumped by a few. Following the discussion, each created their own Dart Frogs. Here they are!

Silent but Deadly Animals

Wednesday, March 29 – 3:30-4:30pm.

Come discover stealthy animals who are deadly in their own way either by poison, claws or paws!

Snowflakes!

We had a great time learning about Snow, Ice & Animals that live in this environment at our last after-school program yesterday. The kids enjoyed creating beautiful flakes and even took one home to decorate. We found flakes on our windows.
