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.

    This one is going to be a couple of questions. How many people were on the ship, did the picture of slomo and the sloth happen after or before you went to the Joides Resolution, how long did it last, I know the expedition had something to do with rocks but what was it.

    Abigail Ledesma

    When you first got slomo, did you ever picture yourself going on as many adventures before as you do now ?

    Seems like slomo has traveled more than me.
