As luck would have it we stumbled across a chance to collect Water Striders for Little Science. (Sorry T, new family pet coming your way!)
So off to the park for a Lesson in Water Striders, who are they, where do the live, & what do they eat?
Did you know they are kind of water vampires!
Oops, the dog fell in while growling at the bugs...
Beach found it easier to catch them by hand.
Home to recreate habitats. A few to the frog tank for the circle of life, a few out to the green house heat sink pool, and the rest to their new home in the school room.
Even Mercy thinks science at the park was cool!
