Escape Room

Our back-to-school team building activity was held at the Urban Escape Room in Alpharetta. Everyone escaped! (The facility has a 37% average escape rate.) What a fun and challenging morning! When we returned to school, we discussed how successful teams work together and the ways we saw the growth mindset demonstrated (the belief that talents can be developed through hard work, good strategies, and input from others.)

Stowaway

I thought it would be fun to have a new invertebrate in the lab, so I plan to order Monarch larvae in the next few weeks. To feed the larvae, a supply of milkweed plants is needed. I ordered those first and found a Monarch caterpillar eating away at one of the plants.What a surprise! He traveled in the mail from Pennsylvania to Georgia.


I’ve planted some of the milkweed plants in pots and others in my garden. Hopefully, they’ll attract some Georgia Monarchs too.
