Today was the first day of Camp What-A-Wonder at Wonderopolis.org. Don't worry if you missed out today because the free, virtual camp runs Monday-Friday, June 17-July 26. This week's theme is "Dig Into the Wild Kingdom" and today's theme was "Backyard Creatures Around You".
Before writing we discussed what creatures we have in our yard. We live on 6 acres and therefore have lots of wildlife. Then we took the three minutes to jot down in our journals what the creatures do when it gets cold, hot and where we would find most of the animals in our yard. I was rather impressed with what both Ben and Betsy wrote in three minutes. They both wrote about how different animals adapt, hibernate and/or migrate in both cold and hot weather. We all agreed that most of the animals in our yard would be found in the woods behind our house.
After a very busy day it was nice spending time reconnecting, thinking, and wondering about the wildlife in our own backyard. I look forward to connecting as a family and spending three minutes each day Wondering throughout Camp What-A-Wonder.
