Photography at St. Therese

My third grade colleagues spotted this bug for me

I spent an hour this morning taking photographs on St. Therese’s school grounds with third graders. We had 13 students with 5 cameras to share and two adults with a camera each. The kids ran for the grassy area with wildflowers. One of the students said: “I found a 4.” It took me a minute to realize that she meant a flower with four petals. Another said: “I found a five!” I had read Growing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature the previous day.

A Five

A Spiderwort

We were very excited to find this spiderwort, which is featured in Growing Patterns. It was this time last year that I was taking the final photographs for the book.

Lots of guesses about what this might be

And this

I’m guessing a sparrow

    Wonderful photos! I think the bird is a sparrow. I have some photos of it taken by a student with twigs in its mouth. It is building a nest up there! I’m downloading/uploading everyone’s photos now. Just with my camera and the student’s cameras, I had over 350 photos! Quite a day!

    I’m guessing a crawdad (or whatever they are called) hole and a gall found in oak trees.
    “a four” and “a five”. That’s great. Just in case someone thought they weren’t paying attention.
