Going Batty

Happy Monday!  We are going batty in our class.  We are just beginning our unit, but I have a lot to cram in because the 50th day, Halloween and assessments for parent conferences all need to happen during the the week and a half as well.  One activity my kids love is batty breakfast.  Batty breakfast is a great activity to give students a visual as to how many mosquitoes a brown bat may eat in a hour.  Do you know how many?  Some say up to 600, that is a lot!  So we break our students into 6 groups and give them a paper with 100 mosquitoes on it.  As a group, they need to work together to cut apart their mosquitoes and glue them onto a plate.  When we are all done, we have 6 plates with 100 mosquitoes on each plate.

Here is our schema chart
