Today we spent our time inquiring about dragonflies.  We researched them, drew them, and made dragonflies for our window.

Some interesting facts we learned

  • dragonflies can fly backwards.
  • they have 60,000 lenses in their eyes, but cannot see detail.
  • dragonflies beat their wings 30 times per second (bees 300 times per second)

We also found out about the dragonfly’s life cycle and its food chain.

Here are our window dragonflies.
