We have been focusing on insects and arachnids in Casa II. One of the children was particularly interested in the spiders and how these scientific specimens were made. I suggested we write a letter to the manufacturer, so he did. Now, I have a pretty good idea how the specimens were produced but it will be interesting to find out how the manufacturer decides to word the answer. It was fulfilling to find a way to help this child want to write because it is not an activity he generally chooses, and it is difficult to guide him into doing this activity. A satisfying way to end the week, for both of us.
