Here is a quick recap of Wednesday, May 24 (related resources below)
The middle and highschool groups continued their dissections with a worm.
The younger scientists read Are You a Butterfly? by Judy Allen: (“did you hatch from an egg…”) looked at the life cycle of a butterfly and butterfly migration.
Remember – come prepared to share with the group a book that you’re reading!
More Shakespeare?!? We took a look at Shakespeare’s most delightful play: Much Ado about Nothing
Middle and Elementary Book Chats.
This week we looked at the wide world of non-fiction. We talked about types of books we might find in the non-fiction section of the library like: classics (like Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling and Stickman Odyssey Christopher Ford), information books (Find Out about Birds Green; Secret Life of a Snowflake Libbrecht), and how-to books (Kids’ Embroidery Nicholas; Lanyard Gryski; Camp Out! Brundle),
The youngest readers also talked butterflies and made a butterfly chrysalis:
