Day 20 - We're changing!

We had an exciting time in Science class today. When we took out our mealworms we noticed that a few of them have entered the pupa stage. Some students were worried that their 'pets' had died but then they reminded each other that the changes were going on inside. They are anxiously awaiting for the beetles to appear. I should have those pictures within the next couple of weeks.
It's fun to see the kids so curious and excited even if it's sometimes difficult to contain the extra energy. I went to my blog and showed them the pictures I had taken of the mealworms when we first got them. They asked to see the other pictures on the blog. We had a really interesting discussion and the interest in our class blog (A Picture a Week) seems to be rekindled. They even added a post today. Good news all around!

Maybe we could learn from the mealworms. Sometimes when we look at our students they seem to be "dead" to our interventions. But they could be changing inside. We just have to be patient.
