This week the students 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 students also discovered how and where bats sleep and that they find their food through echolocation. They were amazed to discover that bats are also mammals like them because they: have fur all over their bodies, born alive, drink mothers milk and are warm blooded. The students 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.
