Camas, WA students get Jumping Bean Experience!

3rd grade students of Helen Baller Elementary School in Camas, WA learn about Mexican Jumping Beans.

What makes a jumping bean jump?  Where are they found?  How long will they jump for? these were some of the questions posed to me as I presented on my book, Lucas and His Loco Beans.  The students learned about the life cycle of the jumping bean moth, they became familiar with region jumping beans thrive in, and they pick up a few words in Spanish.  Our visit culminated in the sharing of beans they were able to take home to share with their families.

Thank you Helen Baller Elementary for the wonderful visit!
