Last week we went to Ralph B Clark Regional Park. This park includes a large lake and a lot of play grounds. The kids had a lot of fun playing on the playground, something we don’t do very often on our Nature Study days. They also explored the lake and were dipping sticks into the water, watching the fish swim by, commenting on the grass growing under the water, and Little Miss was amazed at the ducks flipping upside down and thought it was funny!
The main reason we choose this park however, was for the interpretive center. The center doesn’t open until 12:30, which is why they got to play on the playground so long. It’s a unique nature center in that it’s actually called the paleontology museum. The entire museum is fossils that were found in our immediate area!
Green Bubbles took Flat Ziggy with us on this trip. You can see him in a few photos. Flat Ziggy is a fun activity from All About Learning Press for the summer including a fun activity list and contests! Ziggy, or Zig Zag Zebra, from All About Reading Pre-level, has always been a fun part of our school. Even Little Miss loves him even though she hasn’t started AAR so the kids jumped at the chance to play with Flat Ziggy.
