What a great visit we had from Ms. Bonnie and Ms. Ev and their furry, and not so furry, friends form the Ray of Light Farm in East Haddam! They shared a video about their farm, talked about what horses need to live and grow. Next we got to meet Tippy the tortoise and his much larger tortoise friend. We leaned about what they eat, how long they live and how big they can get. Did you know that their tortoise, Stella weighs over 100lbs?! After that, we got to visit with 3 adorable guinea pigs. They chomped on some lettuce and skittered around a bit. Then we got to pet them! Ms. Bonnie and Ms. Ev talked to us a lot about the animals and how to care for them. It's a good thing, too, because Tippy is coming to stay with us in the classroom for the rest of the week! We are SO excited!!! Thanks to all who offered donations for us to give to them to put towards their farm! Check out these cool pictures from their visit!
