Just before Thanksgiving she brought home a sheet saying they were to choose any animal that lives in desert, rain forest, ocean, artic, or regular forest and show how they get their food, water and their shelter.
Before I finished reading the assignment paper she was already telling me, " I want to do my natural habitat for the BLUE WHALE because it's the biggest animal or mammal on the earth Mom! I am gonna keep my animal choice a secret and not tell any of my friends at school b/c I don't want them to copy me!"
It took me a whole day of shopping to gather the stuff we had decided we needed for our shoebox. Hobby Lobby, the pet store for the rocks, Target are just a few of the places that I found what I needed.
Adding the facts of her blue whale to the side of the box was her idea....but we typed them b/c there was no way she could write small and neat enough... Did you know that a Blue Whale's heart is the size of a small car?? Or that it's main arteries are large enough that a human could comfortably swim inside them?
I'm looking forward to seeing what animals her classmates choose tomorrow. Who choose desert, or forest, arctic or ocean...
Oh and you know one of my favorite parts... the back of the box. :) She wrote, "Nora Minor. Together with Mom. Cool! Really. ♥
