Brrr! Freezin' at the Zoo!

For our Thursday get together with our homeschooling friends, the Millers, we went to the Tulsa Zoo. To make it special, Daniel and I prepared two mini books based on the "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" book by Eric Carle. As we went through the zoo, the girls got to choose which animals they wanted in the books. Then Betsy or I took a picture with my Polaroid camera and glued it right into the books! Then we filled in the name of the animal in the blankspots I'd left. So instead of "Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?" Danya and Gloria's book says "White rhino, white rhino..." Here's a link to a website with fun ideas to go with the book: Brown Bear, Brown Bear

We also read a poem about 100 animals at the zoo (10 of each kind), and then went on a scavenger hunt to find them. We found all but two, because we were freezing and wanted to go home. Did the weather affect us? Well, the next day Gloria woke up with a fever and the day after that I woke up with strep throat. But other than the weather, it was a really good day.
