MAD about Reptiles
This week, Dan went for his second-ever enrichment class, called MAD about Reptiles, run by the same people who did MAD about Birds. I was happy to see En & Linus there, with their mummies, cos that meant Dan would have friends in this week's class. ^__^
Unlike last week, when Husband picked Dan up from class, it was my turn this week and it was great to hear from Dan first-hand all the things he learnt. Here's some things he rattled off on the car ride home:
1. Reptiles are not scary. If you don't scare them, they won't scare you. (cheem.)
Other things that happened: the kids took a nature walk, they also saw the bones of a tortoise/turtle & the dead skin of a snake (!), and made a snake mobile, which we'll be completing this afternoon, with Ben.
Sounds great. Plus, Dan, once again, brought home a plant which he potted himself. And HOW is this plant related to reptiles, I asked him. "This plant can attract reptiles. If they smell the plant, they will come to it." I really don't know if this is real, or he just made that up.
anyway, I'm glad that Dan seemed interested enough in what he learnt, and will dutifully reinforce everything with loads of library books about reptiles and birds over the holidays.
