Have I ever told you about our science museum? (Yeah, okay it’s not OUR science museum…we just like to visit there.) It’s only about 25 minutes away from us and it is an incredible hands-on museum filled with all kinds of scientific wonders. We bought a family membership so we can go visit whenever we are able to.
Once a month, the museum hosts a “homeschool day” inviting families to come participate in the planned lesson for the day. Our kids have learned about building bridges and heating a home efficiently and everything you could ever want to know about reptiles (and then some!).
Before and after the program…the boys love to hang out in the great big room full on science exploration!
Here’a nice view of several of the tables filled with educational fun.
Asa’s trying to re-create one of the shapes on the table with his tangrams.
Here’s Elias doing…something cool…sorry I’m not as familiar with this activity. I think it has something to do with the speed of light? (Am I smarter than a first grader? Apparently not.)
Have you EVER seen an Operation game as big as ths one?
That poor patient has HUGE butterflies in his stomach.
It’s okay though…Dr. Justus is taking care of it.
I’m so grateful that we have such a neat facility so close to us and that our boys love exploring there. I love all the great things they’ve learned and that the hard working folks there are so “homeschooler” friendly. We can’t wait to go back next month!
