This Week’s Adventures: We discovered the amazing lives of insects and their relationship to flowers in Spring.

Favorite Activities: We pretended to pollinate flowers like bees and slurped applesauce with a butterfly proboscis tongue (straw!). We searched for flowers along the trail and grouped them by number of petals and by color. We used sweep nets in the meadow to find small critters and classified them as insects or arachnids. We also made special gifts to honor our mothers.

Next’s Week’s Theme: Stream Searchin’

Try this at home: Note how many flowers you can find during a walk with family. Where else can you grow more flowers to help the bees?
