We also noticed that some of our mealworms are going through metamorphosis. Some of our mealworms have molted, and a few larva have moved into the pupa stage. We watched a short, time-lapse video that shows a mealworm larva morphing into a pupa. (It's got great music if you don't care for the content.)
We also learned a game called Cover the Snowflakes. To play this game, you need a regular die, and a die with 0, 1 and 2. Partners take turns rolling the dice, then adding the numbers together and placing a counter on the snowflake with that number. The first person to cover all their snowflakes wins. We used the counting-on strategy to play the game, so if a player rolled a 5 and a 2, they would count on from 5 two more to get to 7.
We watched more of the Disneynature movie Bears today. This movie is so incredible as it shows this mother bear in the wild raising her cubs. They are constantly on the move looking for food.
Have a nice evening!
