IMG_1874Our class has been busy reading about BUGS in our TIME for Kids magazines.  The students read an article about how some countries and some places in the United States are using bugs as a source of protein!  This made Mrs. White and I think….what happens if we allowed the kids to try a bug?  Well, over 20 kids in our classes tried them today!  Here are a few pictures!  I even tried one myself!

Bacon and Cheese, Sour Cream and Onion, Salt and Vinegar and Chocolate covered crickets!
