What I like about my terrariums are that I can make more homes for other animals and I have fun making terrariums.
This is how I make them: first, I put some dirt in a plastic container. Then I put the moss in on top and if I can I’ll find some rocks and wood to put in because pill bugs like rotten wood, I think. I find the moss in the alley. There’s moss growing near the big church.
My two terrariums have three different kinds of bugs. One of the terrariums only has pill bugs and centipedes. The other has some centipedes, pillbugs, and one caterpillar.
I take care of my caterpillar. I put a cotton ball soaked in sugar water so the caterpillar can drink the sugar water. And I’m seeing how the mustard greens are doing with the caterpillar, if the caterpillar likes the mustard greens.
Every week or every day I water the terrariums. Sometimes if I put too much water in, I realize that it might sink the bugs or drown them so I take all the bugs out of the terrarium.
I think that all of the kids should be able to make terrariums. Just follow my instructions and that might teach you how to make your own terrarium.
When I was in the Bahamas, the first day we were in a different island. It was a small town called Nassau.
First we got into our hotel. It was really nice. Outside of our hotel it was like a big rest stand and there was a hammock chair. And then we ate lunch at a beach and there was a big boat. The boat got stuck in the sand and there was big construction to remove the boat.
And then we got to San Salvador island.
When we were at San Salvador island, we caught a flounder. It was bony and I didn’t really like it.
The next day me and Papa tried to open a coconut. It took a long time. Mama’s wrote about how to open a coconut.
Then after that day, we went to the tidal pools. We saw lots of snails. And I liked to pick them up and remove them to a different place.
And then after that, we met three boys and they showed us how they did tricks on the beach.
Then we went to the mangrove trees. A mangrove is a type of tree that lives in the Bahamas near like lakes and ponds and creeks. We saw snails living on the mangroves.
Then Alex caught a triggerfish. We cleaned it and cooked it and then we ate it.
I found two sea urchins. Then we went home.
My favorite thing in the Bahamas was seeing all the cool fish and swimming and building sand castles.
