This week we learned about different types of bats from micro to mega and even found out that there is a bat that is as small as a bumblebee! The class discovered how and where bats sleep and that they find their food through echolocation. The older students were very excited to share the fact that bats are mammals and explained to them the different characteristics that make them mammals: fur all over their bodies, born alive, drink mothers milk and warm blooded. We even learned that bats are nocturnal and that when we are sleeping they are eating all of the insects like mosquitoes, beetles and ants helping humans by stopping the spread of diseases and insects from eating crops. We will offer some courses for parents who want to learn about these kind of topics and share the knowledge with kids at home, there is also the possibility of taking them on Coxswain courses Gold Coast, the classes will be taught in our beautiful garage that actually were rebuilt by balancedgaragedoors.com, we will have a wonderful time there.
