Lab Animal News

All of my scientists look forward to observing our lab animals! It isn’t often that I catch all three frogs together. Yoda is usually hidden away during the day. As soon as I took this picture, he disappeared.

Jabba likes to go for a swim.


Uno, a Pekin duck, and Percy, a silver appleyard, live in the retention pond behind school. They were hatched in the lab and cannot fly. We had some visiting mallards last week. Our ducks were not very welcoming and they didn’t stay long.



Squirt loves to sunbathe- just one “toe” in the water!


Our tadpole’s front legs appeared last week. On Sunday, he still had a long tail, but today it turned black and has almost disappeared. He is also using his new lungs to breathe.

Strange Sights

After we returned from our days off because of the hurricane, my youngest scientists discovered nearly perfect circles of “white dots” on the playground. They were very curious about what they might be and started thinking like scientists. Not certain, but I think it is lichen.


I saw these unusual mushrooms on the other side of the pond when I was feeding our ducks.

Our campus is like working in a nature center! We are very blessed to have such a beautiful place in which to learn and explore.
