I was putting my things on the student desks to get my purse and camera out of the cabinet. I looked over and saw this insect menagerie on two of my girls' desks. They will make sure to set them free tomorrow. I tell them I don't want them to keep the poor guys more than one day. They need to be free.
The water in the first cup is sugar water...I found out that this student brought sugar to make sugar water for her insect catching quest at recess. Notice the specimen numbering system! Wow.
The middle cup is a moth of course. The last cup has a lady bug. I think the first cup is to recapture the moth she let loose in our room yesterday...string in sugar water....to lure it back in. I will have to ask tomorrow.
I am going to MISS these kids come May 24.
Do you think the fact that I notice and take photos of insects has influenced them?
