Bug Discovery

What a wonderful we wrapped up!  Even with some rainy days, we were able to get out on the playground--and then this little critter was discovered.

This sparked an ongoing discussion about what it could be.  "Is that a stinger?"  "Is it a wasp?"  "Why isn't it flying?"  "Is its wing hurt?'

To find answers, the teachers took to wikipedia and showed the children our visual match to see if they agreed.

See the entry here.  Luckily, it appears that our new playground critter does not have a stinger but rather an egg depositor.
