Today is VERY windy and we had to fix our trap. We had to reposition the stakes and tighten the ropes because the wind was too strong and pushing the trap over.

We put in the ethanol chemicals today after we fixed the trap.

Today was also an exciting day at our school, because we got two exchange students from Colombia! They both have the same first name!! They are not in our grade though, they are in the grade 7/8/9 classroom.

These are our predictions for our insect catch today:

Nathan: 20

Joaquin: 0

Josie: 15

Mathea: 12

Josia: 13

Lucas: 35

Joshua: 10

Other Boy: 14

Other Girl: absent
