This week we talk about our two favorite books: Superworm and Whale and the Snail.
Earthworms are pretty amazing. Did you know that they have 5 hearts and some of them can be 12 feet long? (luckily these do not live in the US ;)). We will tell you all about them in this lesson. We will also show you the ones we found in our garden and read about the best worm of them all: superworm. Our art is a watercolor + salt painting and you can learn all about it here:
