DSC01459 The whooping cranes have almost completed their migration to Florida. You can check the daily status of the whooping cranes here. In the Discovery Lab we used the SMART Board to “click and reveal” food hidden in the saltwater marsh habitat. The cranes love to eat blue crabs! They also eat insects, crane chow, corn, mice, snakes, fish, and more. We learned a little chant: Food, Water, Shelter, Space…Habitat is a wonderful place! Then each student made a model of the habitat to take home. DSC01458 DSC01466 DSC01487
