Museum of Natural History

Yesterday we joined some other homeschool families at our local college for a tour of their natural history museum. I didn't even know that our college had a Museum of Natural History. I was very impressed with it as well as the two hour presentation that they did for our children. They were divided into three groups and spent time at three different stations. The first one discussed plants, plant parts, and pollination. The second station showed slides and samples of life cycles and metamorphosis. The last station was a tour of the entire museum. We found out that we can go back at any time as long as we call ahead of time. It's so great knowing that we have such a great place to go for hands on learning. I'm excited to go back and spend more time as we continue to study the subject matter that is available there. We are looking forward to another field trip on Friday....a tour of WWII planes at our local airport! Since Jeff loves WWII history, he is going to join us at that one!!
