Monday at the Pond

This week's visit to the Pond had us searching for bugs.
I started with a book.
Some Bugs by Angela DiTerlizzi and Brendan Wenzel is full of descriptive words
and helped us think about where we might find bugs.

The families were enthusiastic to look all over.
They looked through the grasses, lifting rocks and
under logs.  As well as in the water and trees.
They found worms, spiders, slugs and lots of roly poly wood bugs.
We also saw a white moth and a few other flying insects
but they were too quick to catch on film.
One parent spotted this wood bug that had shed it's outer skeleton.
