This morning has been different! 6th grade students have visited the Medicine School of Valladolid. They have learnt many interesting things about what doctors normally research and how they carry out their experiments with rats, mice, worms and bacteria. After the laboratories, we went to the anatomy museum to see a huge variety of human and animal models, tools, bones and many cool stuff that we have studied before.

We really appreciate the time some teachers and doctors have spent on us. Thanks so much!

Here you can enjoy our experience with some photos:

Looking after our stick insects. Ecosystems

Publicado: noviembre 27, 2013 de Nacho Herrero en Living things, Plants

Now we have to be careful with the food they eat. At the moment they are eating rose plants, but they only eat the leaves. We must clean them well to remove the pesticides and chemicals they have before giving them to the bugs.

Some of our children clean the leaves.

After few days to get ready the soil, the terrarium, and the correct conditions for this small ecosystem we have introduced the stick bugs. This is a big family with two parents and nine sons.

There are many conditions and characteristics that you must know to look after them.

First of all they eat rose plant leaves, they must have a temperature between 21º and 27º C. and at the moment they are living in one of the terrariums. If this family grows we will have more of them in other terrariums in the school.

Here you can see more information in spanish if you want.

For everyone there is a nice species to keep, but all species require care. This page will take you through all the basics of caring for any stick insect species.

During these days the children have been creating an excellent water ecosystem for tropical fish. Of course we did the first steps and now we have to wait to have the big fish you will see in this video. The fish you see at the end of the video lived in the same acuarium last year. In the “arts and crafts” classes we decorated the posters for the instructions and now we are ready to write more things…

Now it’s your turn if you want to look after them. Be careful with the Acid levels, the temperature (always between 24-25º C) and feed them correctly.
We will create some more ecosystems.
