Day 13 - Class Pets

As I mentioned yesterday, 'A' and I were trying to take close up pictures of a mealworm yesterday after school. I managed to get a few shots but it was tricky; the little guy would not stay still and I was using my macro lens without a tripod. I chose 2 pics today so you could see different views. I would like to experiment some more with the macro and paper towel.

In case you're wondering, our class has mealworms for the next few weeks. They have named them and are taking care of them as they observe the changes their little friends are going through. Otherwise, they're learning all about metamorphosis. It's wonderful to see their curiousity and energy.

I think you did a great job on these. Hope we can watch the changes too.

Yes Susan, both the students and I will be taking pictures throughout the process. I'll be sure to post a few.
