I'm just getting to post this today, but Friday dd and I were able to have a very hands on lesson. In science we have been studying birds. Feathers, markings, and such. Well I walked outside and had to save a bird from my cat. It was a bit dazed so we put it in a tote box for a little bit. While we waited dd was able to study it. A perfect "hands on" experiment to go along with her science lessons. She was tickled pink.
