On Monday, the boys and I headed to the Texas Discovery Gardens. The boys loved the butterfly house.
While we were walking through the butterfly house, Thing 1 came up with the wonderful idea of taking pictures of the butterflies and turning it into a book. Luckily for him I was already trying to take pictures of the different types of butterflies.
I took all the best pictures of the individual butterflies and inserted them into a publisher document. I intentionally left the pictures blank so the boys, mainly Thing 1, could identify and write out the names of the butterflies.
The boys were super excited about their book and Thing 1 has done an amazing job of identifying the different types of butterflies. Our field trip turned into great reading and writing practice. YAY!
When he finished identifying all the butterflies, I bound the books so that each one has a reminder of our trip.
What have your field trips inspired in you?
