The Birds and Bats?

First graders were having a serious discussion comparing bats and birds. They used evidence from the text and were knocking my socks off with their depth of knowledge. The teacher asked a question about what bats use in order to navigate at night. Kids were asked to share their idea with a neighbor before raising their hand. A neighbor in front of me whispered, “echolocation” and my neighbor to the right whispered into my ear, “a flashlight”.
