Did you ever notice how the most interesting lessons that you teach are usually the ones that are unplanned? Yesterday, we noticed some wasps hanging around one of the children's outdoor toys. Art sprayed the toy down with wasp spray, flipped it over, and found the nest. Inside the hive we found wasps in all of the different life cycle stages. Even though the children had seen this in books, they had never seen it in "real" life. It was a fascinating science lesson, and Chelsea took the photos with her new digital camera.
