Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew, As raindrops on the tender herb, And as showers on the grass.

Cool & beautiful Science

We have a Passion Flower vine on our back fence, bumble bees, honey bees & butterflies LOVE it. Birdy & Sambo love to catch bugs and play w/ them, ladybugs especially. I bought them a cheap butterfly net/bug catching kit from walgreens the other day (ONLY $3.99 much cheaper than Target! btw). They've been out in the back yard catching bugs ever since. Today was a great catch!

I have them sketch what they catch & write about it. It took awhile for them to catch on to what I meant by 'sketch' it. Initially they were just drawing pictures w/ bugs in them. lol

Don't you just love little dirty hands?
