Mr. Davo Devil Visits from Down Under

Posted on

 

We were fortunate to have Mr. ‘Davo’ Devil  and Miss W visit our class on her tour of the United States.  Mrs. Watanabe brought her to our school and she visited us and other classes who have a blog through Edublog.  Miss W. is one of the bloggers we follow, and it was great to have her share with us.  Our class has a connection to Australia.  Since our ePals live in Port Lincoln, South Australia we are eager to learn about Australia and meet people like Miss W.  This is the way students should learn-through experience!  It looks like Mr. Devil is smiling for the camera!

Our class was so excited to have Miss W. and Mr. Davo Devil stop by during their trip across the United States. We learned a great deal about the Tasmanian Devil and the state of Tasmania. We even saw Vegemite!

Do you have an interesting fact about the Tasmanian Devil to add to what we learned?  Have you had a visit from a special guest in your class that you thought was interesting?

  1. G’day class,
    What a great video your teacher made of me talking to you!

    Have you looked up the links yet on the side of Mr Davo’s blog to find out more about Tasmanian devils?

  2. Hello 3rd Graders,

    Tasmanian devils are interesting animals. When the first European settlers came to Tasmania, they would hear strange snarling noises coming from the tree at night. They imagined all sorts of strange beasts were watching them.

    I always use to find it funny when seeing what the cartoons called a Tasmanian devil chasing Bugs Bunny. Tassie devils looked nothing like that.

    Despite their nasty snarling, they are sort of cute little marsupials, although I wouldn’t want a bite from one. Being marsupials, they are very tiny when born and have to make their way into their mother’s pouch and attach to a nipple just like kangaroos and koalas. The devil only has space for four babies in her pouch so a litter is never more than four whereas kangaroos and koalas tend to stick to one at a time.

    • Dear Mr.Mannell,
      Tasmanian devils are interesting animals indeed. I never knew that tasmanian devils were marsupials. I checked out a book at the libray about extinct animals. Are tasmanian devils almost to extinctton? One of the animals in my book about animal extinction was a Northern hairy-nosed wombat. It lives in Austrailia and there are fewer than 60 left.
      Write back soon,
      Claire

  3. Dear Mrs. Fraher and class,
    Mrs. W. visited our class, too. She showed us Mr. Davo Devil, too and also showed us some pictures of Australia.

    Sincerely,
    Melissa

  4. Dear Mrs. Fraher’s class
