My class and I decided to choose, Come Somersault with Sarah. We liked her posts, pictures, and most videos of her playing the piano! We were truly amazed with her talent.
We also enjoyed her inspiring pictures of her family time together. It was nice to see the family having fun together. She shares many pictures on ther blog, which enhances it greatly. We also liked that she asked engaging questions after each post. After each interesting post, she would add three pictures/links, with the saying of, “you might also like….”

Dear Student Bloggers and Everyone,
For Student Blogging Challenge 8, Freedom Again, I played a virtual surgery game on Edheads for knee replacement surgery. It tells you step by step how to do the virtual surgery.
I think people would like to try this site if they would like to be a Doctor one day, or not. This is the website www.edheads.org. I hope you enjoy it like I did.
What surgery did you perform?
Was it successful?
Do you have a site you would like to share with me?

This is our second year investigating bugs close up with Bugscopes help. Here are some things we learned this year.
Moth head, it has a coiled proboscis — its tongue. Normally the proboscis is coiled tightly except when it’s extended into a flower
Water beetle claws! They have long narrow sharp claws compared to terrestrial beetles.
Honey bee stinger. There’s just one stinger, but it is separated into cutting/sliding parts. Honeybees lose their stingers when they sting mammals, because mammals have thick skin that holds them in.
The stink bug gland. This is where they make their stinky smell from.
Black trap door spider fang. This is where the poison comes from in the fang.
Spiders have pretty bad eyesight but can see changes in light and some movements ok, not so good as fly eyesight.
These are earwig picnchers!
This is the hook on a moths wing to
help them hold on to things.
A scorpion stinger with the poison
The silverfish has scales. This way
when he is stuck in a spider web he can lose
a few scales and escape!
This is a scorpion head with three
eyes on each side! Do you see the small
round eyes on each side?
If you would like to sign up to participate, and try it for yourself, it is free, you can catch your own bugs and mail them in, or they have extras if you can not find any of your own.

Thanks to Bugscope for another fun session learning all about the bugs we caught this year and last year!
