Bats on Halloween

Posted by Laurie Sullivan at 10/31/2008 8:00:00 PM

Second graders had fun learning about bats this week. Mrs. Sullivan shared about the bat she “adopted”. It is a California Leaf-nosed bat. Mrs. Sullivan is from California. We listened to two songs about echolocation and then played the Bat Echolocation Game. We also watched part of a DVD about bats. We saw a vampire bat in action! We also saw a bat catch a cricket and another bat catch a fish. It was neat to see the fruit eating bats too. Did you know that bats are pollinators? We ended by making little books about bats and reading books. Next time in the Discovery Lab we will learn about being a bat researcher.Speechable - Do your photos have something to say?Your browser doesn’t support embeded html pages
