Today was a special day. The kindergarten classes celebrated the successful migration of the whooping cranes to Florida. The whooping cranes are settling into their new habitats. The students saw photos of the habitat (saltwater marshes) and learned what the cranes are eating in their habitat. They love blue crabs, and also eat insects, crane chow, corn, mice, snakes, fish, and more. Mrs. Sullivan said she brought some fish to share with the students as part of the celebration. The students didn’t look too thrilled until they learned the treat was goldfish crackers! Then each student made a model of the habitat to take home. Due to the two hour snow delay, Mrs. Golden and Mrs. Rente’s classes had to be postponed to next Thursday and Friday. So, there will be another celebration next week…not that we mind 🙂
