Butterflies from Niagara Falls

Hi Kids! I've had a great time taking pictures of butterflies and some cocoons at the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls, Canada. There are hundreds of different kinds. I'm sending you just a couple to see now, but I'll show you more when I see you in school. The cocoons are all different, too. That kind of surprised me. One kind looks just like a dried up leaf. I hope you are all having a good vacation. Take care and get some rest :) I'll see you soon! Mrs. Armstrong

What are Louisiana Wetlands?

Soon I will be going into the wetlands of Louisiana. Take a look at the pictures and tell me what you think I will find there. Would you like this place? What do you want to ask after looking at these pictures?

Before I leave you...

Hello Students! I can't wait to leave my backyard and see the wetlands of Louisiana! I hope you'll visit my blog often and send me your questions. I promise to send you pictures, and tell you all about what I'm doing.

Before I go, we need to learn about wetlands and why they're important. Together, we'll learn about the plants and animals of the wetlands, and also about hurricanes! Remember that in 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and really affected the environment.

For 10 days when I'm in New Orleans, we can ask real scientists questions about the wetlands and the caterpillars they're researching. I'm counting on you to ask good questions. Together we'll have a great time! Check back often, I'll be waiting to hear from you.
