Last week we learned about John the Baptist, who help pave the way for Jesus. One thing we learned about him was that he ate locusts. We also ate locusts last week. We thought they would be yucky, crunchy, horrible, and bad, but we ended up liking our locusts!

The 4th graders have been studying Native Americans. We were invited to their Indian Museum where they dressed like their tribe and told us about them. They gave us recipes, and some food samples. We had a good time and the 4 graders did a great job!
