I’ll admit it – spiders make me nervous.

So when Joseph brings a spider out of his pocket today while saying “Can we look at this spider under the microscope?”, I know that I had a nervous look on my face!

But, I am the teacher… so I got Joseph to put the (dead) spider in a slide case with a lid and we explored it anyway. Because I am the teacher…

Here’s what we found!

    Eeeeek! I too am afraid of spiders. How brave of you, Mrs. Wojtera, to place scientific curiosity above your fear!

    Thanks! The surprise part was Joseph pulling that right out of his pocket! I didn’t feel very brave at all!
