2-16-18 Less. 6 added crickets and isopods to terreriums.

2-15-18 Less. 5 Met with science team to make observations of plants and measure them. Then created notes in a web about how the living and non-living things in the terrerium depend on each other.
2-14-18 Read in science book about mosquito fish and snails and answer some questions in spiral.

2-13-18 finished setting up aquariums by adding fish and snails then make in observations.

2-12-18 Set up aquariums with plant life- make observations in spiral. D.A.R.E. in the afternoon.

2-8-18 Start less 3- Read about how plants and animals help each other in an aquarium and took notes in spiral. Then read over our instructions so we know what to do on Monday.
