Wear an old sock over your shoe. Go for a nature walk. Remove sock, spritz with water & put into a ziploc bag. Hang the bag in a window for 2 weeks....watch what GROWS! Very cool! Also check out Mrs. Drake's webpage for science resources. It's a GOLDMINE!
Firefly - We in the south refer to these insects of the night as lighting bugs. So many Alabama summer nights, the children longed to see them first, and we ran together in the grass "catching lightening bugs". Hundreds of them glowed in the darkness, and twinkled on and off as if to signal to us that summer was finally here.Southerns find joy in the simple things in life.
