Summer Science....Betty Beetle

Drew, Tanner and Dalton did a summer Science project tonight!
They found a huge pitching beetle in our small garden, and decided to keep it, investigate and do a report on it.
They feed it crickets and made it a house out of an old hamster cage.
They spent about 3 hours watching and doing their reports. Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Hahn and Mrs. Raach ( all the other teachers too.... would be proud of them!!! =)

This is Betty the beetle!!
