Mt. Rushmore and the Zoo

School is out, but learning never stops. Pretty much a homeschool motto right?

Two of our summer highlights (thus far) has been Mt Rushmore and the Riverside Zoo. Both require driving hours to get to, but are worth it! At least for something fun to do!

How cool is this???


I loved seeing all the state flags and the info!









And the zoo... It was smaller than we were use to, but still great! No elephants or giraffes, but we saw monkeys, zebras, and tiger!




We went with our homeschool group and sat through a hands on presentation about animal body coverings. There were leopard skins, buffalo fur, live hissing cockroaches, etc... to touch and see! It was great!


Yep, learning can happen anywhere!
