We took our first homeschooling rabbit trail today...
It began last night on a walk with daddy. The girls gathered some rocks at the river. First thing this morning they began asking to paint their rocks. I told them that they had to wait until D (19 months) took his nap.
But in the meantime, after our morning work, I got on goo.gle. I searched for some activities/information on rocks and found this. I didn't have any intention on doing every aspect of this activity, but I quickly printed a few pages.
Before the painting would commence in the afternoon, we did some study of our rocks. The girls filled out a chart describing them and had a great time looking at them up close with our magnifying glasses!
When D naps, we'll get to paint them...but here's to our first rabbit trail and many more to come!
