In school we are taking part in Grades of Green . We did a water challenge at home to conserve water every day and we have made a water filter system at school. We take dirty water and put it through and then we can use it to water our garden. These are the materials we used.
On Friday we went on a field trip to the Congo Trail for World Wildlife Day. We went to an animal sanctuary. The animals that are in the sanctuary are rescued from illegal animal trafficking as well as they care for injured wildlife that is brought there.
We learned that some people come to Costa Rica and trap wild animals like monkeys, parakeets, parrots, snakes and sloths. This is bad for the animals because people do not look after them properly or feeding them the right foods and the animals can die while be transported.
While we were there we got to see, monkeys, turtles, snakes, fish, parrots and parakeets to name some. The parrots can talk , one said “Hola”, “Ha, ha , ha”. We got to hold the turtles, they have tiny claws that feel like a pinch. The monkeys were very curious and playful.
I learned some more spanish over the past while. We had a S.T.E.M project and I made a homopolar motor. Now to the good part, the other day I went snorkeling for part of school. Guess what we saw, a stingray!! One of are teachers pointed it out. It was cool but it gave us a warning signal meaning back off. hope you enjoy my posts
The monkey’s came to the tree’s behind our house , they are small but really LOUD. They sound like they growl. They are called Howler Monkeys, i tried to take a picture but they were to far away. I will try again so I can show you.
At condo number ten we saw a scorpion but it was dead. It had ants all over we were on our way to the pool when we saw the scorpion. There are scorpions around here but they are not the really dangerous kind. We still have to watch out for them though because they will really hurt if we get stung.
The other day, the upper elementary were invited to watch a rocket launch live on computer. I know right it’s not everyday you get to see a live rocket launch. It was so cool because two of the thrusters came back and landed side by side. Problem is the rocket broke and is lost in space. It was supposed to go to mars. No people in that rocket just a test.
