Museum Field Trip

We went on a field trip today with some of our friends that are new to homeschooling. 

First we viewed the snakes.  Arianna and Ryan brought their camera so these are their pictures.

We talked some about snake anatomy and compared the location of their organs to ours.

Next we went to the Story Time which was about Tropical Animals.  We got to see and pet a Guinea Pig, Milk Snake, Turtle and Opossum.

This goofy preying mantis was facing backwards on the plant.  He looked like he was in a hold up.

Last we visited the Discovery Room (my fave place in the museum).DSC_0006
