Amazon Rainforest Unit Study (4)


We have come to the end of our Unit Study on the Amazon Rainforest. Last week Aidan and Noah learned about The People Of The Rainforest, Gifts of The Rainforest and Saving The Rainforest. Below I have added a few sites that helped us out with our study. 


Field Trip : Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo (Sevierville, TN)

Daddy was away for job training in Knoxville, TN so the children and I packed our bags and went to visit him! While there I took the kids to the Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo. It was not only fun but the boys learned so much about the animals that live in the Rainforest. This was a perfect ending to our Unit Study. And our oldest daughter Aleah (18) had a blast trying to take a "selfie" with a Llama and talking to the birds.. too funny! (video and pictures of our adventure below)

940 Saturdays Book Review



This book is so creative! I received 940 Saturdays (Family Activities & Keepsake Journal), by: Harley A. Rotbart, MD for review. I didn't know what to expect when I accepted this review. But I have to say I am very happy with the outcome. 940 Saturdays is a nice hardback book full of 940 places for you to record your Saturday with your family. It's a journal but in the back of the book it includes a list of developmental milestones. Also, in a cute little envelope attached to the back part of the book... is another book - full of family activity ideas. I love 940 Saturdays and I can't wait to start recording all of the adventures we are going to have as a family! 

This book is adorable... I highly recommend it to any mother looking for a sweet keepsake for her family! Also, this would be a great Christmas present for any family with children at home!
