Katie Hastings, VMNH educator, is at Patrick Henry Elementary School today presenting "Fantastic Food Webs" to the school's 5th grade students! Katie brought Sheldon, the museum's adorable painted turtle, as well as Reggie, the museum's friendly ball python, to help teach students about food webs - a system of interlocking and interdependent food chains. ��
