Lewis & Clark

Some days I am so fun, other days not so much, but on this particular day I was fun. We were studying about Lewis and Clark and instead of just reading about them we became them. I loaded up the monkeys and headed up to the mountains. I gave each kid a journal, pencil and a bag to collect things. I had them create their own trail through the trees and rocks, collecting as many interesting specimens as they could. We had a blast. Afterwards, they had to come home and compile all their findings and journal into a story about their adventure.
Thinking is so hard.

Examining specimens. 

Even this little cutie "wrote" some stuff down.
Some super awesome explorers.
