During our morning "science time" this week, I was surprised. If students bring something in a plastic bag or bin, I never know what to expect. This week, this is what I saw.
And I thought it was dead. But when I went to take a picture of it, it moved. I yelped. Students laughed. Next we had a discussion about how opossums really do "play opossum", and how some students' fathers catch live opossums by their tails for their children to bring in for science and surprise teachers, or something like that.
