Becky Hick's Class
|Our second grade class has been studying about the brown bat because brown bats live in Fort D, a Civil War site across the road from our school. In the spring and summer, we can see the bats flying over the school eating the insects attracted by our lighting. So please take a look at our bat quiz, bat poetry and bat pictures. We enjoyed doing our research and we hope you enjoy our results.|
