Update on the shrimp and snail

Gary the snail seems to be a happy little snail.  He spends most of his time clinging to the side of the bottle. He is a rather quiet fellow. 

Scampi the shrimp died….moment of silence……but coconut the shrimp is doing well. He enjoys spending his days sitting on the moss ball or on top of Gary’s shell.  He does not seem to realize that Gary is not a reliable taxi service.  He also enjoys short bouts of frantic swimming and stuffing his face with fish food.  He supposedly nibbles on the moss ball but he seems to prefer the fish food.  It is interesting to see it move into his stomach.

The grass seeds have sprouted and are growing well.  The soil is very wet though.  Hopefully mold will not start to grow.

I have found some more interesting sites.

This one is an art site.  I think it would help the kids a lot with learning to draw in their science notebooks.  Some kids seem frustrated by drawing.
