Another Impromptu Learning moment - Mosquito Larvae
Life is an endless educational cycle. We had another impromptu moment tonight. As I was cleaning our grill, I looked over and saw sand in the dog's water dish. Go figure....the girls playing again. So I went to empty the dish and saw something moving. There has been a ton of things crawling around our backyard this week...alot of frogs mainly. So I investigated, saw 50+ larvae floating around. At first thought it may be frog eggs, but thought how could that be. I know it was clean last night when I filled it before going in for the night. So went to the internet....How did people homeschool before the internet?!?!
This is what I found.....
Mosquito Life Cycle
Apparently we were raising mosquitos. I can't remember ever seeing anything like this before.
Had to show the kids before cleaning the dish out. Not going to raise anymore mosquitos. :(
