RE: bugs


 I like to use slugs in the classroom.  Did you ever watch how big they get
when left to crawl on a table, for instance?  My preschoolers love to watch
them stretch out to maybe 4" and creep along!  I just brought a bald-faced
hornet's nest into school.  It was way larger than a basketball!  It has
papery construction on the outside and honey comb -like cells inside! What a
work of art!  I spotted it in a friend's garden this past summer and asked
her if I could retrieve it this winter. I was so excited to find such a
large nest!  I have smaller ones, but his one is a gem.  Don't know where
I'll store it however.  My classroom is jammed full of "interesting stuff"
like this already!
