The girls are studying animals in science right now. Along with their textbook, they are reading a series of books on animals from different parts of the world. I thought it would be appropriate to start with the animals from our own area. One of the animals we studied was the porcupine (which is a rodent and a mammal!).
Okay, textbooks can be a little dry. So, I supplemented again with a craft - a yummy one at that!
Our math for the day (not really):
1 marshmallow + dozens of toothpicks + 3 cloves = a porcupine
Maddie with her porcupine.
Eva with hers.
Graedon and his.
I love how different they all look. You'd think that there wouldn't be much leeway for creativity but they each have their own individual look.
BTW, they didn't last long.
