The Winners

Congratulations to Jamie and Alexis, who were the first to post the correct answers to all three questions.

1. India
2. 300-500
3. Mulberry trees do not grow in many places in the United States, and silk worms need them to eat. Interestingly, they do grow in Las Vegas, and many teachers have them in their classrooms!

You two have won some special prizes from Vietnam when I return.
Great work!

1. List the three countries that Vietnam borders. You must spell them correctly. Cambodia, Thailand, and Laos.

2. Are butterflies invertebrates or vertebrates? Why? invertabrate. Because they have no back bone.

3. What is the name of the artist in Montana whose studio you will visit on our trip next week? You must spell his name correctly.

Charles M. Russell's

Question one: what is an indicator species? An indocator specie is a specie that you can look at and know if the world is not pullted.


Question two: why should we study indicator species? In other words, what types of important information do we learn from what happens to them? We would learn if the wourld is pulluted or not.


Question number 3: Name one common butterfly in the Spokane area that is not a painted lady or a monarch. A swollowtale.
