I am currently an FIU student. I am in my senior year and I am so excited to graduate soon. I currently work at a Preschool with children that are 3 years old.

5 Great Collection!
This collection is very informative and it is all related to camouflage. The resources included here are interesting as they describe the ways animals are in disguise to prevent predators from noticing them. I like that there are different articles that describe different lessons and activities that can be done for different grade levels based on this topic. The article animals in disguise is very interesting as it describes how a student noticed a lizard and that led the teacher to discuss about camouflage with the students. It makes me think how it is important to notice what students are discovering and also be aware of their interests.
