Throwback Thursday- Going Batty

Wowza, what a week!  Busy, busy and my kids must have gotten into the crazy pills.  That is okay, I am on the home stretch.  The weekend is near.  I know many of you are beginning to go batty in your classroom.  We will be in about a week and a half.  We are finishing up our green team unit right now.  I thought I would throwback to October of last year and share some fun batty activities we did.

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
