🗓 Last Saturday, my 8 year old 👦🏻 and I went for the @sgmontessori 6-12 class on

Connections in the Universe,

together with @globalmindfuljourney, @moomoovi,

@4__of__us__ and another family!

(Thanks for sharing the videos and pictures!)

🌤 We had an eye-opening outdoor lesson

on the Long Black Strip

illustrating the passage of time

from the creation of Earth

till the coming of humans.

🐚 Then we returned to The Attic to make

our very own fossils

with our guide Karen @k.for.kinder!

👀 Suddenly, I spotted @mystorytreasury's

《藏猫猫的竹节虫》book

from 我的第一套自然认知书

My First Nature Encyclopedia (Set of 40)

on display,

next to the stick insect tank!

After many minutes of stillness,

one stick insect decided to take a walk.

Did it purposely poke

the biggest stick insect Twiggy?

I wonder.

What I do know was that

Twiggy was so startled,

it poked another stick insect

while trying to find its footing.

The third stick insect

had to make way!

Soon Twiggy stabilised itself,

and started chomping on a leaf.

📹 I shared the video with my other kids later at home,

who found the chain of events so funny!

📗 We then read the book 《藏猫猫的竹节虫》

filled with lovely real-life photographs.

This bookset is one of our favourite,

and we’ve gone back to it

so many times over the years.

In the book, we also learnt about leaf insects.

The camouflages are so cool!

💡 Later on, together with my 6 year old 👦🏻,

we identified some 部首 radicals and

primary/single-component words

from the words in the title.

💭 We wondered whether

there are stick insects

in the wild in Singapore,

and found out that there are!

Recently I've discovered several amazing Instagram accounts

that feature our local biodiversity.

Do check their pages out,

learn about the cool

flora and fauna in Singapore, and

show these some incredible accounts some love! ❤️
