The kids learned so much in one day, and we only saw half the exhibits! The great thing is that they have special home schooler days, so we look forward to a more ‘closed’ center with fewer people! They still had a great time, music, hands on stuff, slides, water fun, bubbles, and much, much more!
We originally came to the museum for the Mary Pope Osborne Exhibit. We wanted the kids to get an idea of field medicine, etc. On the trip down we listened to ‘Civil War on Sunday’ which featured Clara Barton, as a follow up to our Florence Nightingale unit, since Florence influenced Clara for Civil War nursing! I had already read the book ‘High Time for Heroes’ and part of the fact tracker ‘Heroes for All Times’ a couple of weeks ago which featured Florence as a younger woman, and how she might have been inspired to help others. The books were similar, and I loved reading them and listening to them. You could really tell that the 3 year old listened to the audio book, because she helped me as a ‘patient’ in the tent JUST like it was told in the book. Yeah!
