Woodland Terrariums

Thursday, December 12, 2013

The last week of November began our unit on "Organisms." We have been learning about plants and animals and their many needs and habitats. We built terrariums for our woodland animals to have a home. Each table has their own terriarium to keep watch over. Each table got two millipedes and four pill bugs (roly-poly bugs). We are letting them feed on a pine seedling and moss. We've also been adding a small bit of raw potato each week. They love it!

Its a millipede!
No fear for holding the millipede! She is braver than me :)
