Day 54 - Did you say Turtles? - Mrs. Lee's fifth grader Daniel at Fox Hill Elementary

Here is our first guest blogger to tell you about some special visitors to our classroom.

Did you say Turtles?
Written by: Daniel

     Yes, I said turtles.  Here in room 13 we have gotten turtles from the Burlington Science Center.  We are very lucky to have these turtles accompany us in our classroom.  The names of the turtles are Mia and Dorito.  They are three-toed Box Turtles.  Here are some facts about them.  Their scientific name is Terrapene carolina triunguis.  They live generally in Texas, Georgia, and Alabama.  They usually eat earthworms and bugs.  Three-toed Box Turtles usually survive 25 to 40 years.

Dorito would rather eat crickets.


  1. Correction: Daniel is a talented and awesome FIFTH grader at Fox Hill!!

  2. That makes sense since Mrs. Lee is a fifth grade teacher. Thanks for pointing out the error.
