  1. Today, we Skyped with a Yellowstone National park ranger. He gave us all sorts of information. Some of us had been chosen to give a question. Lucas’s question was “Does Yellowstone have lots of fires?” His answer was that lightning bolt are the main cause of fires.There were about 7-8 fires a year. If you want to learn more, contact your teacher to talk to the ranger.

  2. Thank you to my teacher Ms. Holmquist and Ranger Mike a Yellowstone national park for making this possible. Thank you guys. 🙂

  15. I enjoyed the Skype and I was a little nervous. I loved the new and awesome things we have learned! I was nervous because my class was not the best. I learned about endangered animals and how big the park is. We also learned about the great history behind the special park.

  16. At the beginning of the Skype i was really nervous. I thought I was going to mess up. I didn’t though. It turned out to be really fun. We learned tunes of facts. Like grizzly bears are endangered. Also the park rangers don’t take of the animals that are sick. It’s not that they don’t care for them they just let nature take care of themselves.
