About a week ago my daughter got her first library card and we have been spending a lot of time at the library.
Believe it or not, she has been checking out and watching nearly every Bill Nye the Science Guy video that the library owns! This is funny to me because I am a science teacher and have almost every Bill Nye ever recorded- but they are locked up in my classroom at school for the summer!
Love his theme song! Anyway, I am not very much in the mood for teaching kids over the summer- even my own kid, but I thought that I would jump on this opportunity to do some science activities with her.
I found some black-line masters of snakes and butterflies online and told her that we were going to play a little hide and seek game.
I told her to observe the backyard and decide where the best place would be to put her butterflies and snakes out in plain sight. I told her to color the animals so they are camouflaged to their surroundings, and that I would pretend to be a bird and try to find her animals to eat them. She did an awesome job!
So, while she was at camp today, I hid the animals in the kitchen.
Do you think she will find them???
