"The wonders of nature are endless."
Since so many schools are closed down to the Covid 19 pandemic many sites and teachers are offering free lessons. We homeschool and love finding new things to learn. Changing how we teach here and there keeps the kids more engaged and less likely to get bored.
The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden's is hosting a different animal every day this week for the children to watch and learn about. There is a quiz, art challenge, or project to do with each one. Today was make a porcupine. Of course each child was up and ready to do this craft. We used mixed media between paper, yarn, clay, pencils, markers, and pens. Each one is different from the next. The kiddos made videos to talk about their porcupine with some facts on them. Some of the facts are accurate and some are a little made up. See Chloe's Easter Bunny/porcupine combo.
