Nature Center & Mobile Library {Field Trip}

The summer library programs are pretty great.   We really like to take advantage of them when we can!  Since we school all year round (taking breaks as desired), the summer programs provide alternate ways to "do school" and have fun!

We headed to the Nature Center to participate in a science & nature themed summer reading program.  
While there we had a chance to see the "bookmobile!"  
What a fun opportunity to check out a library on wheels!

 In the nature center we had an opportunity to learn about caves, animals, plants and a lot more!  Here the girls are learning all about animals found in caves in this "cave" created by the Nature Center staff.

We went on a scavenger hunt on a short hiking trail.

We learned about bats.

Animals and how the Native Americans used them.

We learned about camouflage, made a camouflage mask and posed for a picture with this ginormous prairie chicken.

Kayley got to do an experiment to discover how caves are formed.

We ended the day with lunch at Braums where ice cream cones were definitely in order.

We had a great time!
