Students in Mrs. Katie Barnes' 1st grade class at BPS have been learning about bats all week! She explains, "Today we transformed our classroom and spent the day in a bat cave. We wrote about our favorite bat facts, practiced using our sense of smell to find others just like a bat and did a bat craft! We have had so much fun!!" #BetterAtBlackford
