First thing this morning, Caitlin calmly called me over to the classroom sink. She showed me that we had a buggy little critter running around inside! I’d never seen anything like it, so I scooped it up and brought it over to the document camera to show everyone.
Before the days of Louise our Media Cart and her Ladibug document camera, I would have had a swarming huddle of students around me… all trying to see what I was holding. I would have had to then settle them into their seats and walk the specimen around the room so everyone could get a peek. Instead, the experience became more of a show and tell (well, actually it was more like Show – because I didn’t know enough to Tell). when I provided our furry (I think she was furry) friend with her Big Screen debut!
And now, hopefully – with the power of the Interweb – it will be a Showed and Tell tomorrow – our long-legged, furry (?) friend is no longer in the classroom because my Personal Assistant, Lily, and my Botanist, Eloise safely escorted her (him?) to the “safety” of the Great Outdoors.
So, do you know what our Mystery Visitor is (was)?? Share your expertise!!
