This week’s Fun Friday post features a video that I found out about on byrdseed.com.  I know that many of you are still experiencing cold weather, but here in San Antonio it has been mild for weeks.  When we returned from Spring Break this week, I noticed an unusual number of students hunched down in the field during recess.  It turned out that they were all examining ladybugs.  My Kinder students are working on “Scientist Thinking”, so I thought we should take advantage of this abundance of these appealing insects, and do some research.  This slow motion video of ladybugs taking off will fit in quite nicely with our curriculum. It is fascinating to watch that second pair of wings unfold!  Here is the link in case the embedded video below does not show in your browser:  http://youtu.be/87iV4ISAY5U
