Termites!

A termite mound was removed from the rafters of a nearby building in early January.  On the first day of school after Christmas Break, each class at The Greenhouse took a turn studying and dissecting the mound.  Prior to the ‘field work’, each class learned about termites from books borrowed from the school library.
