Oh, what fun we've been having in merit class!
Last Friday we went outside to do a little field study. We didn't find any herps (reptiles or amphibians), but we did find lots of invertebrates, including worms, insects, centipedes, and grubs. We had fun turning over logs and exploring the pecan grove looking for creatures!
Our vocabulary keeps growing, as your child may have mentioned! Here are a few of the recent words we've encountered and have been discussing:
regurgitate (one of the children's favorite words - ha)
The children have had a great time today in merit doing some independent research on the computers and recording their findings in their journals, too.
We've got lots more to learn in our exciting herpetology study ---- you can expect an invitation to a herpetology program some time in November! :)
