Spiders, Spiders!

As a culminating activity to our One District, One Book program featuring Charlotte’s Web, Mrs. Rhonda Hawley from the Math and Science Center gave a presentation on Spiders, Spiders! Mrs. Hawley, also known as The Spider Lady, taught students about various types of spiders, their adaptations, and behaviors. Students watched spiders spin webs and trap their prey in silk. She even brought two tarantulas with her for students to see. As winners of the last trivia contest, Ms. VanNess’s class had an extra visit from The Spider Lady. What an awesome way to end an awesome book program!!
