Greetings from Wallops Island, VA – NASA Sattelites can see billions of teeny-tiny plants and animals (phytoplankton) living in Earth’s oceans!

Wow! Fluffy looks at microscopic animals living in the ocean!

Wow! Fluffy looks at microscopic animals and plants collected in the ocean! There are billions and billions of them living there!

Under the microscope Fluffy sees a tiny animal with eyes, brain and nerves!

  1. Dear Fluffy,

    We miss you both. We have 1 chrysallis and 2 dead caterpillars. Mrs.
    Brunette removed the bodies. The bulbs have arrived. We’ll plant them
    next week. Great photos on your blog! Have fun . Love,

    • Dear Grade One,

      I miss you too and look forward to returning to the science lab on Monday!

      I got very wet on the research boat today. It was very, very windy and rainy today. You will see the photos tomorrow and you might notice my fur is dripping wet! All for the name of science as they say…

      I am happy to hear that you now have a monarch chrysalis in your classroom. How exciting for you to see! I am sorry to hear about the other caterpillars and know that sometimes these tiny insects stop growing for some reason even when they appear to have everything they need to live.

      Next week looks like a good time to plant your tulip bulbs outdoors. I wonder when the tulip plants will sprout and grow flowers?

      See you soon!

      Love,
      Fluffy the Science Dog
