Hi! My name is Ms. Hall. Please travel with me to New Orleans to study Climate Change and Caterpillars!

Greetings from New Orleans!

Ms. Armstrong and I arrived safely in New Orleans and set out early this morning to explore nearby Audubon Park. We thought you'd enjoy a few photos of our discoveries. We also have a few questions to ask you.

1. How do you like Ms. Hall's new hairstyle? What is this plant, and why is it often called air plant?

2. Look at the strange bumps around the bottom of this tree. What kind of tree is this? What are the bumps called?

3. Is this a caterpillar or a blue runner snake? Should Ms. Hall take a closer look or run away fast?

Go to Ms. Arm
strong's blog for some amazing bird and caterpillar photos. I look forward to reading your comments!

Hey There Mrs. Hall:

You look like you are having a good time in New Orleans! I know that the plant is called a lichen and that is a sign of clean air! I'll write to you on your e mail. Watch out for those gators in the swamps. Be sure to wear your high boots!

Period 2 (sorry we didn't post during Period 1, we will tomorrow)

Bashi-"I like your new hair style:)
The bumps on the tree are called knees.

Tou-Have you seen any alligators yet?

Yae-Please take a picture with an alligator, when you come across one.

Kase- Does the alligator live on your head? :)

All of your students believe the picture is a caterpillar, and not a blue runner. Take a closer look and don't run away!

Period 3

All of us miss you and look forward to you sharing more pictures and information about the caterpillars and alligators.
The class thinks you look like a Zulu queen :)
Some think you look like a bruja(witch)or fortune teller.
I shared with the class that the air plant is call Spanish moss.
The class believes the photo is of a caterpillar and not a blue runner snake. They want you to look closer, but don't touch, because it will make your skin itch.
Jesus: I want you to crush the caterpillar, so we can observe what is inside.
The class says the name of the tree is ______,they forgot:(
The bumps are called knees.
The class says "We will do our homework".
Have fun and enjoy yourself!
