There are two ravines on the property and today we opted to take science back outside. As other kids ran free from their brick-and-mortar school day, we headed up the west ravine to check out the flora and fauna, build fairy houses, explore dens and holes (before the snakes come out for spring).
Three extremely short hours later we returned home hungry and tired and full of questions. What were some of those things we saw? Those long, wiggly worms in the creek? Those squishy green balls (eggs or algae)? Those plants? Those tracks?
Let the research continue!
