News to Catch Up On

We had a few great events in February and March that we need to catch up on writing about. First, our friend Monte came and shared the Golden Eagle named Slim with us and all of our second grade friends. We love learning about birds of prey and seeing them up close. It was awesome when Slim flew across the room. Another fun activity was playing migration games with Mr. Willadsen. We learned that some birds, like the Arctic tern actually migrate north in the winter. We also learned about the hazards birds face when migrating. Then we went to the Discovery Center for a field trip and learned about the ways in which dinosaur bones and bird bones are the same. Finally, even though the weather was mostly cold and wet, we still saw birds almost every day we went out watching at school.
