Summer Science

We found a really neat looking beetle in the house and didn’t recognize it, so Jameson (with JJ trying to help) set it up in their bug box to observe and identify. They did really well, and learned a great deal! Kids love hands-on learning, not just pictures in a book, and this is what young science lessons should be like in my mind. I love their fascination with nature and the way they remember what they learn this way!
