Polar Bear Experiment

 Maddie and Izzie playing Go Fish.

 The girls got some money from Lady and Gator and they wanted to check out Claire's for some jewelry. Izzie was very happy. She had a hard time narrowing down her selection. She ended up picking a very fancy necklace and some earings. Maddie didn't want any jewelry at first, but she did find a bracelet and then found a cute fuzzy journal that she decided to buy.

 The mall has a small branch of our local library so or course we had to stop in. As we were leaving the girls saw this TV that was playing a show? about cats. There wasn't any sound, just close up of different cats playing. It was sort of mesmerizing. After I finished checking out our books, I looked up to find both girls just laughing and giggling away at the cute antics of the cats. It was really weird, but cool.

 Girl Scout meeting!

 Belinda the stray popping over to say good morning. This was a couple weeks ago, we haven't seen her recently. She either made it back home or made it in the belly of a predator. I hope she made it back home.

 We are learning about animal adaptations and specifically adaptations of Arctic Animals. The girls both tried putting their hands in ice water, lasting just about 10 seconds. Then we put gloves on, slathered crisco on and put that in a ziplock bag (good hint, it makes removal easier if it is all contained.) Here is Izzie with her adapted blubber hand. She found she could stay in the ice water for a long time! After 10 minutes she got bored. Fun experiment!

 Maddie and her blubber hand!

 Maddie kept hers in for awhile too, then she also got bored. They really got to see how animals insulation helped keep them warm in icy waters!

Later that day, at homeschool group. It was raining really hard so they came into color and play games.
