Today was much looked forward to because today was a movie day! But first, we learned about our country, Madagascar! The kids had to answer questions to get down from the now hill.
Fourth largest island in the world
250 miles off the coast of Africa
59 species of chameleons and more than 110 kinds of lemurs only live here and nowhere else in the world
Lemures have 13 black and white bands on its tail
Baobob trees grow here and are known as the tree of life because id stores water in its trunk, which allows it to make fruit during the dry season. Also, some of these trees could be more than 800 years old.
Rice is the largest crop farmed, but Madagascar produces most of the world’s vanilla!
We stopped by Verdant Coffee for some hot cocoa and we read the Disney book Madagascar before heading back to the library to watch the animated film!
Thank you VERDANT COFFEE! We are so happy that you are able to serve gluten free hot cocoa. It was delicious!!!
Megan saw the Madagascar Moth at Boise’s Discovery Center of Idaho that is part of the artist exhibit! Check it out below!
