Adding Mulch and Exploring the Bugs at Carson-Gore

We got a delivery of Mulch as I arrived at school on Thursday, and there was nothing I could do to stop the kids from helping me during recess. Who knew they would enjoy moving mulch from point A to Point B so much.  We also got to explore the the large differences in bugs in the garden by using magnifying glassing to get us even closer to the action.
