At first, he did not want to do it because it seemed hard to construct. I then encouraged him to do it together with me. Finally, a helicopter is built... .

Earth Day is a good time to show the boys how to appreciate the earth. From one of the program in PBS channel, I got an idea for the science project. It is easy to do and we just do it from our backyard. That is digging out the dirt and observing it.
The museums in Houston always offering good educational program. Thanks to one of the mom from a homeschool group who organizes different kinds of field trip to the museum. This time we joined the other families for this field trip learning about Paleontology. The boys got the chance to see all kinds of fossils and the dino's exhibition.
Exploring nature is one part of our homeschool curriculum. The Houston Audobon is a great place to explore during spring time.
