Thursday: We had an awesome field trip with a group of about 30+ other homeschoolers at Amicalola Falls State Park. The kids got to do three classes on: Snakes, Rocks and Life Cycles. We learned a lot of really cool facts and even got to pet real live snakes. Did you know there are 6 species of Venomous Snakes in GA?
|Check out rock samples.|
|Great Horned Owl. Did you know all birds of prey are protected in GA?|
|The kids really enjoyed petting the snakes and so did I. |
I hope we can get a pet snake again someday.
|Raising hand and answering questions.|
|A kid even spotted a snake in the wild during our class it was a Worm Snake.|
