"Treat yourself to a lifetime of exploration. The reward is exhilarating!" ~Mama Hen
Little Chick has been learning all about the Solar System, continents, habitats, endangered animals and so much more. I thought it would be wonderful to reward her with a fun trip to New York City to explore the American Museum of Natural History. What a fabulous day of adventures and learning! Little Chick was so excited when she saw the life size dioramas. I was so proud of her for making the connection with the displays and the diorama she had done in the beginning of the school year. She immediately said, "Mommy, look at those huge dioramas!" Pretty smart to connect a shoebox project to the life size version. We went to the Butterfly Conservatory and loved watching all the fluttering beauty of these delicate creatures. One butterfly sat on Little Chicks finger for a few minutes and then another sat on her shoulder. They knew she was a sweet creature lover. We also went to see the movie Journey to the Stars. This was so fantastic after learning about all of the planets and our Solar System the past couple of months. It was a wonderful day of exploration with my beautiful Little Chick.
