  1. Hannah and Rachel, your facts about moths show how much you learned and the illustration is fabulous! I will show your blog post to my students as an example of another way to share learning. I teach in Texas in the U.S. and our class blog is similar to yours. If you have time, we’d love for you to visit and leave a comment for us!
