Today we headed to the Weis Earth Science Museum for a spur of the moment field trip. We couldn’t make it to Neenah in time for the showing/funeral service of my husband’s uncle. My daughter had a doctor’s appointment this morning. He did make an appearance with my son to the gathering. He dropped off my daughter and I at the museum.
The museum was very interesting. It contains information about history of Wisconsin and science. It’s not very big and probably only took us 30 minutes to go through.
For the longest time I have wanted to put together a weather class for the homeschool community. I contacted Cameron Moreland from NBC26 and he agreed to do a class for us. Thank you Cameron for coming and speaking to us and Thank You to the parents for allowing me to post this picture.
We had a great turn out for the weather class and I think a tour of the station and maybe the National Weather Service could have been a bonus added on to this. Maybe later in the future.
Yesterday I got together with another homeschooling family and we headed out for a fantastic day of fun! The weather was a little cool but it was not hot. I think I even got some sunburn or wind burn.
Our first stop was the Wild Life Sanctuary. They have really made some nice additions to it. They home animals that are injured. They even put up some play ground equipment for the kids to play on. Which I thought was pretty cool. Lots of geese and ducks and I noticed there was two swans. There was only one Canadian Goose nesting yet. Couldn’t really feed them as they were full from being fed by a mound of kids on field trips.
