Valentine's Day & Chinese New Year Celebration

As we celebrated the reading month, we learned about Chinese New Year.  We made a great wall of readers, had a dragon parade, ate lunch with chop sticks, and made a dragon bookmark.

Also we had a fun Valentine's Day party.

Nature Center Life Under the Ice

We had a fabulous time at the Nature Center.

We got to visit three stations.
Station 1. We observed small creatures that live under the ice called zooplankton. It was amazing to see these small animals through a microscope.
Station 2. We also closely observed fish that live under the ice.
Station 3. We went out on the pond. We learned about ice safety, water molecules and fish that live in the pond.

Here are the pictures from our trip. Enjoy!
