What a morning! Bella brought in a beautiful moth to share with the group and together we discovered:
- It is called the sphinx moth, or hawkmoth
- Males have broader antennae on most moths. This one is female.
- Its larvae are hornworms – bad for field crops and not liked by farmers because of how many crops they eat.
- Nocturnal moths use the moon for navigating, and that is why they often can’t seem to get away from our porch lights
We also read a story about fireflies and sang a song too! Then we made our very own glow-in-the-dark fireflies after a snack.
And my favorite part about the morning? Clouds. We created a big magical cloud for each of us to walk through, over and under. Just look at the happy faces!
Don’t forget that next Tuesday we are having a very special program – the puppeteer! It is entertaining for the entire family, so bring everyone!
