|We found out what type of lizards they were...Bearded Dragons!|
|Reading the 'Reptiles' book together|
|Adding wonders to our lizard table|
|Touching Bluey and comparing him to Ripper|
|We measured Bluey and he was a bit shorter than Ripper|
We then met Jasmine.
|A.C pulled a chair over so he could observe Jasmine more closely|
|Jasmine was much smaller than the other two lizards|
P.D- I wonder if Jasmine is a kid or a baby?
K.T- Jasmine looks like so small the lizard, the lizard there, he looks like both other lizards!
D.S- I wonder if he is a boy or a girl?
A.Ah- I wonder if Jasmine is Ripper’s baby?
A.H- I wonder why he is a baby?
A.A- I wonder why Jasmine is smaller than Ripper and Bluey?
M.W- my wonder from last time is, I wonder if Jasmine is a bearded dragon?
A.R- I wonder why he has a smaller tail, than Ripper and Bluey?
N.M- I wonder where small lizards live?
R.H- I wonder where big and small lizards live?

|The students found a pattern on her back...can you see it?|
A.C- I see white, brown, white, brown!

What do bearded dragons eat?
A.A worked hard and looked through the books we had and found out that bearded dragons eat:
- bugs and insects
- plants, fruits, leaves
- small reptiles or mammals
We learned the science term is omnivore.
Where do you think they live?
A.C- in a hot place
I.L- at the hot place
A.A- United States
D.S- North America
A.H- South America
I.S- the zoo
K.T- the Canada
P.D- in woodlands, I read it in a book
E.K- they live home, they’re from somebody’s home
P.D found the book and showed us that bearded dragons live in wooded areas in Australia. They live in forests, deserts and along the coastline in Australia.
Why are they called bearded dragons?
D.S found a book and taught the class about this. The book explained they have a pouch under their chin that they can expand and turn black to scare away enemies.
But... we still have lots of wonders about these lizards! It was been fun learning alongside the students.
I.L- I wonder why they live in Australia?
P.D- does Ripper’s skin come off like snakes?
We are excited to keep exploring, observing, wondering and learning about bearded dragons.
