Fridge Flash: Why Squirrels Don’t Care for Robots

August 1, 2017

The kids in Oliver Jones’ first grade class were instructed to imagine a story that took place outside of their school. They were to include at least one real element they have observed outside. Oliver chose to include squirrels in his story. He hasn’t observed any robots on the school grounds but he hasn’t given up hope.

The robots shoot water at the squirrel with a cannon. They will run away because they don’t like water.

 

Oliver Jones is seven years old and is wrapping up his last few days in first grade. He’s looking forward to a long summer of lazing about in the pool and avoiding having to do anything resembling school work.
