We have been learning about China over the past 4 weeks and here is a few pictures of our journey. The kids had a great time learning about the different things in China. We ate Chinese food with chopsticks, made our own Chinese lanterns, studies the animals of China, and also made a China Lapbook (my favorite). The Lapbook is such a great tool that they can look back on and remember what they talked about and learned.

Narnia anyone?

This exhibit was pretty awesome

Julia found a trash can! ? ! LOL
We were able to get a year pass to the Museum of Science and History this year. So we took advantage of this great deal to check out the exhibits. Even though the Planetarium was under construction, we still had a great time. They had the body exhibit that explored through what your body parts do and look like. They also had the Chronicles of Narnia exhibit as well. The kids loved looking at how everything was made and the costumes of the characters.
