The Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Fish- We learned fish are vertebrates or they have a backbone or a spine.  They are cold blooded (their body temperature changes to the temperature around them) and have slimy and scaly skin.  The unique thing about fish is that some fish are born alive and some fish are born with jelly eggs.  Some examples of fish are Trout, Bass, Sharks, and Swordfish.  And one more important point is that fish live in water.


I saw this movie when it was originally released in the theater. 1975 ish. Does this make me old?


Did You Know? (Ants Sleep zzzzzzzz)
A recent study of ants’ sleep cycle found that the average worker ant takes approximately 250 naps each day, with each one lasting just over a minute. That adds up to 4 hours and 48 minutes of sleep per day.  The research also found that 80 percent of the ant workforce was awake and active at any one time.
