NC Aquarium

A day at the Aquarium with Havelock Homegrown Kids. We had a wonderful, exciting, educational time. Lots of neat things to see, tons to learn, and fun with new friends!

We got to hold a starfish, pet a stingray, watch a hermit crab find a new home. They do a fish feeding daily at about 10:30, we watched divers jump into the tank with SHARKS! There was a jelly fish, and fishes galore! A huge exhibit about turtles, otters were at play. They sure put a show on for us! Johnny liked watching the BIG fish, Tyra enjoyed the stingrays and talking to the lady that worked there. We found her very knowledgeable. Jacob found the Sand Tiger Sharks interesting. We all enjoyed the blizzards afterwards!

Thank you to NC Aquarium and all the supporters for such a fun filled, educational day! We look forward to our return!

Earth Day 2010 Online Posters

We have done our share of wasted resources by our weekly poster boards and lap booking. For Earth day 2010 we have found a site to help eliminate this waste. Glogging, online posters!

My children and I are still in the "learning" phase of how this all works, so please be merciful with us!

The assignment for Tyra and Jacob was to make a poster board about recycling. Johnny and I worked on one for Earth Day so that I could learn how this all works. I have found this to be a very fun way to research and learn! However, there is a way to "upgrade" the account and add class projects. I would LOVE to do this, but at $99 a year I guess I can do without it.

My children enjoyed it. Tyra likes learning new technology on the computer and my older children enjoyed this much better than a regular poster board. I still am a bit old fashion and enjoy cutting, pasting, and painting on poster board. I liked the idea of producing less waste! I also have a hard time disposing of our poster boards and this adds clutter to our home, so all around it has been a nice experience. We are going to continue to glog, but I think we will still do an old fashion hands on project from time to time also!

Please check out our glogs and let us know what you think!
