Reptile Watching and Weekly Wrap-up

After we learned how reptiles are cold blooded,
they have leathery skin, and they hatch from an egg,
We went to the zoo to check them out.
We go to the zoo often,
So it's been fun to learn about different types of animals.
Now every time we go, we focus on one area.

We also brought Miss Sassy's Great-Grandma.
She pointed out so many fun and different things as well!

It was so fun to notice all of the heat lamps,
and how the reptiles moved.
We spent ages looking at the lizards, snakes, and turtles.
In fact, it was the only thing she even cared about.

It was a fun trip and a great way to make a memory.

Here are some other awesome reptile ideas:

The first is from My Creative Family
She created a Pond in a box
I love this idea, it is essentially a sensory box that can be put back into a shoebox.
Fun, imaginative, not messy!

The next is from Kelly at Here Comes the Sun.
She did a whole Alligator learning theme.
You can see her daughter made an alligator
out of a clothes pin.
She linked it to literature and math by singing:
5 Little Monkeys Swinging on a Tree,
Teasing Mr. Alligator, Can't Catch me!

The last idea comes from Lines Across My Face
She created Chameleon Pipe Cleaner Animals.
She read A Color All His Own,
and made several different color chameleons.
She shows you exactly how to make these cool guys.

Here are some other ideas I found on the blogs I follow,
and I pinterest.
