We have been working very hard on learning all that we can about plants! We all know that plants need soil, water and sunlight to thrive...but did you know that venus fly traps can count!?! We do!! We learned today (after checking out our venus fly trap class mascot!) that the plant will only snap hits trap shut when prey has bumped its trigger hairs at least twice in a 20 second span. WHAT!? How do they do that! Fascinating! We have learned all about how plants adapt to their habitat, how seeds move around and many other amazing plant facts!! Below you will see a quick screen shot of some of our learnings...definitely not all of them! There is also a screen shot for the website "Kiddle". This has been PERFECT for our researching unit! Students have been able to research and watch videos/see pictures of plants without the fear of inappropriate things popping up on the computer. This search engine is "like Google for kids". It is great!! I highly reccommend it for home as well!
