Playing with pill bugs

While watering the garden one day, I had some third graders and some kindergarteners come up to me to help. As they were helping me weed, they saw some pill bugs and promptly screamed! This harmless bug is so common in the garden, that I wanted to show them that there is nothing to be scared of. After a few minutes, they were picking them up all by themselves! Any time can be a learning experience; even recess!
