Wow, thanks everyone for all your useful tips! I will definitely remember to bring the bug spray, rain boots, and long, yet cool clothes!
You know, as I am sitting here blogging with you all, it is starting to rain and thunder. This reminded me of today's read aloud "Thunder Cake," by Patricia Polacco. I REALLY want a piece of thunder cake right now! It's a good thing there's a recipe in the back.
Also, rain and thunder can be scary and annoying at times, but I've come to realize that it's actually very important to our environment. Why is it so important? How does it help? Do you think New Orleans gets a lot of rain? Why or why not?
Hey, check out this cool looking caterpillar that looks like a twig; I mean, talk about camouflage! I found it on a website created by Dr. Lee Dyer, he is the doctor of ecology with whom I will be working with. Hmmm, a doctor of Ecology? I wonder what an ecologist does/studies?
By the way, here are some fun games you can play... AFTER YOU FINISH YOUR HOMEWORK! Enjoy!
