Bats, Bees, and Butterflies: Week 1, Day 4

Today was an exciting day because we went to the beach! Our butterfly life cycle is still a pupa and is working on growing all their butterfly body parts.

Before we went to the beach, we had the kale chips that we prepared yesterday. They spent last night in the dehydrator. They tried the chips plain, then with a little oil and salt.

Our "bus attendant" Mr. Alan explains the rules before we get to the beach.

We went to Lakeshore Park beach and had so much fun playing all day! So many things need water to survive and grow. The world is covered with more than 70% water and the human body is about 60% water

When we got back from the beach everyone was so tired! We enjoyed our sushi snack in our welcome spots and relaxed. We used seaweed, sticky rice, and radishes.
