hiking without happy meals; a modern paradigm chronicling the struggles, pitfalls,
& successes of life, running, writing, urban farming,
& home schooling in these crazy modern days.
Life is our classroom.
Perfect time to finish our Plant Science Unit with a little walk up East Canyon. See the trees turning, collect leafs for leaf luminaries, get close with seeds, & walk in the sun...We took the dogs along because although the SL County side is a water shed the Morgan County side is not.
I bought the girls science notebooks & colored pencils which gives us 2 more projects to look forward to doing: covering the notebooks & making no-sew wool felt pencil rolls!
Covered the basics on the ride up: reviewed chlorophyll, seed transportation, gas exchanges, you know all the usual plant science. Threw in some history Mormon Pioneers, Parley Pratt & his road, & the Donner Party. Don't worry we brought Apple Oatmeal Cookies.
With seeds everywhere even I am carrier!!!
The little scientist at work. Moving from plant science to insects (hey, how did they know that was the next unit?!)
The poor snake I hit and injured.
The girls getting a better view of the sheep herd running towards us down the narrow canyon road.
Sheep dog perhaps?
Great freaking Day! Look for our leaf luminaries, science notebooks, & pencil rolls. Next week Little Science takes on Insects & Bugs
