Buckeye Room Bulletin
This week we took a look at life cycles of humans, frogs/toads, and butterflies/moths. Humans have relatively boring life cycle compared to the butterfly/moth and toad/frog. As humans we are born, we live, we die. YAWWWWN. The toad and frog start with being jelly eggs in the water. They hatch into tadpoles and eat algae, then they turn into a froglet which has a head of a frog and a tail. Then the tail falls off and an adult frog/toad lives the rest of its life on land. The butterfly/moth starts as an egg. The a caterpillar is hatched and it eats A LOT. Then a caterpillar spins its (butterfly) chrysalis/ moth spins a cocoon. Then a buttery comes out of its chrysalis and moth comes out of the cocoon. I posed the question “which came first the egg or the butterfly?” This created some heated conversation!
Did You Know? (Don’t Listen To What Your Mother Said):
Although chewing gum is designed to be chewed and not swallowed, it generally isn’t harmful if swallowed. If you swallow gum, it’s true that your body can NOT digest it. But the gum doesn’t stay in your stomach. It moves relatively intact through your digestive system and is excreted in your stool. Did your mom tell you it would take seven years to digest? Mine did.
Below is the gum where the flavor lasts a whole eight seconds. I also thought it says “vapes” in action.
