After travelling with me on an expedition in 2016 aboard the deep sea drilling ship the JOIDES Resolution, SloMo, a sloth puppet, joined my 7th grade class.

He is a great addition to our team in my science class and allows my students to connect science to their everyday lives. It is also a lot of fun following his adventures.
Visiting Old Faithful at Yellowstone National Park
Meeting a fellow sloth at the San Antonio Aquarium
Making a snow angel in south Texas
Doing some lab work at Memorial Junior High
Learning how to plaster a dinosaur leg bone at the DIG Field School in Montana
SloMo came along to orientation at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and he has been having a blast.
The meals have been delicious at!
The staff is so helpful and we are learning a lot during orientation

They have special places everywhere for use to hang our jackets
We got to see what gear is used in the field when it is REALLY cold.
