This week is funschool all the way. Monday consisted of an exploratory hike, into new territory for us.
Pill millipedes (sow bugs) were EVERYWHERE, this quickly became the topic of all conversations and studies. We wondered at why there were so many on the trail, what they eat, were they arthropods?
The West part of town
A log, covered in pill bugs.
Joey lovingly nicknamed the sow bugs "A.T.A's," All Terrain Arthropods. (At home we learned they are Isopods.
Pill bugs and soft gun pellets....always a treasure.
Joey's pet A.T.A.
A white-tailed deer, not too shy.
Eli brought home a cash of bugs.
A homemade terrarium for our bug friends, complete with lots of decomposing leaves, new leaves and lots of moisture. Just the right habitat for pill millepedes.
