 We had a visit from Prairie State College nursing students today! They came in to teach us about what is safe to eat and what isn't safe to eat. We also watched a poison prevention video on what to stay away from: such as our medicine cabinets, under our kitchen sinks, and containers in the garage. Thanks for visiting us, we learned so much!!

 We observed the inside of a pumpkin!! Students got to see and feel the inside with it's seeds and flesh. While observing, the student's measured how tall the pumpkin was with unifix cubes, and how round the pumpkin was with links. Our results showed the pumpkin is 13 cubes tall, and 22 links around. We saved our seeds and are going to have baked pumpkin seeds with our snack! Yummy!!

 Our trip to the Flossmoor fire station was a huge success!! We learned to get out of a building if it's on fire, to stop, drop, and roll if our clothes are on fire, and to never hide or be afraid of firefighters. The Flossmoor firefighters showed us the fire engines, ambulance, where they sleep, eat, and how they put their gear on. It was amazing to see how much protective fire gear they wear to stay safe. Thank you to our Flossmoor firefighters and the parent volunteers who helped today!
