We went deep sea diving straight into the ocean and found ourselves learning and swimming with the enormous Blue Whale! In fact, did you know that the Blue Whale is a mammal and can weigh as much as 441,000 pounds and can grow to be as big as a jet airplane! Wow, now that is amazing! We spent time on the beach while making our very own Sandcastle Sand Art with our library friend Ellie! Next, we got to meet Abigail who dazzled us with her sparkling crown and BEE QUEEN sash as she introduced us to her very own bee hive. We got BUZZING with the BEES! Did you know that bees cannot see the color red and can flap their wings 200 times per second, plus out of every 4 bites of food bees are responsible for 3 of those delicious bites? We are so excited, in the month of September don’t miss out, we are going to make beeswax candles and lip balm with our friend Abigail. I can’t wait!! Finally, as if this week isn’t fun enough, Friday we learned all about plants. Plants provide us with both oxygen and food, wow, who knew that! We got to make our very own CHIA pet friend.
