Candling

We candled one of our duck eggs. Candling is a method used to study the growth and development of an embryo inside an egg. The method uses a bright light source behind the egg to show details through the shell.  Originally candles were used.  Looks promising!

Tree Frog

The nickname of this species of tree frog is smiling frog.  Can you tell why?  They are so much fun to watch!  Maybe he is smiling because I just fed him crickets.

TICCIT

TICCIT (pronounced “ticket,” which stands for “Trees into Cartons, Cartons into Trees”) is an outreach and educational program for school-aged children held every year at the end of April to honor Earth Day and highlight the renewability and sustainability of paper and paperboard packaging.  A team from Graphic Packaging presented this program to our third graders.
