projects and fieldtrips...

The girls started working on a couple of projects for their rainforest unit...


While listening / watching a couple of video's on the rainforest. The mobile they are coloring and going to hang are from this...

they have a couple more projects from the list as well, but since this was a nice inside on a icky day type activity we started with that.

Some of the video's we watched off our playlist can be found here

The next day we went to the science/industry museum and had some fun. Kaitlyn is starting to take an interest in photography so she took a few pictures of sis as well as some of the other kids...

They had a lot of fun in the physics lab and want to go back "at least 3 time a month"! LOL. I told them since we have to make an appointment near by there later this month that we could stop by and play for a couple of hours while we are near by. One nice thing about having a membership to places is that you don't feel bad if you only spend an hour or so each time you visit rather than having to feel like you need to do everything in one day.

Today it's back to the rainforest projects, reading and math. Then time to get some chores done!
