So Many Animals, So Little Time

So this is some of our shots over the last few days. This first project was a huge hit. (and it only cost me a dollar :))
I decided that since Gabe is learning about Zoo Keepers, it would be fun to have them make their own zoos. I went to the dollar store to pick up some poster board (they were out of white, so I had to go with yellow). The boys used their crayons to draw the cages. For the animals, they each have a planet earth sticker book. It makes for great animals. They worked on them for a good hour and a half. It was so wonderful and peaceful.

After school work was all done Gabe decided to make another zoo. I love when homeschooling carries into their play. He was so cute how he put all of the animals into their little areas. After I took the picture he brought out some of his Rescue Heroes to be the Zoo Keepers.

Sam spent some time on his globe learning different facts. He was so excited, he loves this globe.

Gabe helped make playdough. He then proceded to make an animal statue for all of us.

This beauty was a the nature center. She was so close that we could reach out and touch her. Of course we did not do that though.
