Dinosaur Zoo Class
Today we went to our first homeschool afternoon at the zoo. It was for ages 4-5, and the theme was dinosaurs! Gerrick got to touch a Kenyan Sand Boa, a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach, and a Bearded Dragon. Later on he met another zoo keeper, and they discussed camels. As we were leaving, a T-Rex shadow tried to sneak up on us! Here are some pictures; click on the image to make it larger:
Before we went this morning Gerrick colored one of the dinosaur pictures the teacher emailed him. He says that it's a camouflaged Tyranosaurus Rex (apparently it lived among colorful flowers). :) Notice the gash he added to his belly. Gerrick says this is where an anklyosaurus cut him, and you can see his hip bone.
