week 13, back to it

girl using tongsOne of this week’s highlights was heading to a local metro park for a homeschool program with one of the naturalists.  We learned all about different bird beaks and tried out stations designed to mimic them.  Gracie spent most of her time at the duck station, using tongs to fish beads off the bottom of the bin.
boy using tweezersJudah tried his hand at the tweezers and pipe cleaners to simulate how chickadees use their beaks.
boy using a strawAnd Courben was proud of himself for figuring out how humming birds use their beaks like straws.  We sure like reading about science, but going and experiencing science is also quite enjoyable.  As always, we’re thankful for our metro parks and naturalists!
