One of the things that Barbara mentioned in her eMo, "Pollination" yesterday was bats.

Well, I think it was when Brian was in 3rd grade the teacher invited parents on "Back-to-School" night to go through curriculum and pick something they'd like to come in and teach the class about. I picked "Endangered Species" from the science book. Of course being a teacher mine wasn't just a little lesson, it was like a whole unit! I had all kinds of activity stations around the room. The kids loved it. I remember did one section on bats. I had contacted an organization and gotten information pamphlets. It told about how useful they are and dispelled the myths about them.
We couldn't get through everything in the allotted time so the poor teacher just had to follow up and finish it with them, since the last activity they got to do upon completion of all the work was to rubber stamp a piece of paper with stamps of endangered animals and then wrap it around, what else but, a Pringle can, and then get to take it home. That was a big deal!

To learn the facts about bats go to Bat Conservation International:

We have bats in our backyard. They come out at twilight.
