Our Word View - WATCH

What is Our Word View?  A collaboration between two friends who lost touch over the years but have reconnected online.  We share a love of the ocean, photography, quotes, animals and family.  Often times our photographic interpretations for the word of the week are very similar.

This week the word watch was chosen for our photographic interpretation.  I hope you will go over to Our Word View and see what Liz shares this week.

Over the past month I have watched with the eyes of a scientist along side my students as my friend and colleague S led us through an embryology study - egg to chick.  We have all learned so much along the way.  A little over a week ago our chicks were due to hatch.  We had a 25% success rate.  Six chicks survived out of twenty four fertilized eggs.  In the fifth grade ten or eleven chicks survived. Mother nature is both powerful and astounding.  I was humbled by these tiny, resilient creature.  They all went home on Friday.  Some went home with a 5th grade family and the rest went home to S's house.  I miss them already!
