Start our study on the human body and go to the Western Fair this afternoon. We go to the fair every year simply because it's a family thing to do. Hubby has gone for years, and so therefore do we. :)
It's a good place to go educationally speaking as well as they have farm exhibits, various booths, and some hands on events as well. We generally go two days, once for us, once for the boy as bounce back tickets are inexpensive. :)
We also read about the rough-backed newt. This newt tends to live in the water or in damp places. It excretes a poison from it's skin which kills most predators, except for some snakes which are immune to the poison.
The Human Body
We hung them up on bedroom doors.
Throughout the year we'll be adding body parts to them. We'll be using this book
We also took our measurements so that we can watch how we grow and change throughout the year. :)
