This week we continued with our Animal themed alphabet...
Sid the Science kid has a great episode on shadows which we watched together and then did the animal shadow shape match activity together. The episode does a good job explaining why we don't see any details in a shadow, only the outline of a shape. It inspired me to make shadow puppets with the Piwi's too.
Tuesday was Free Afternoon at the zoo so we decided to take a trip to see how much the baby Elephants have grown....
|Mini Piwi wanted to take this little one home but I told her his mummy would miss him|
|And I wouldn't want to argue with this mummy!! They were such a sweet family though|
|We were so luckky to be able to see these beautiful and intelligent animals up close! Of course there are disadvantages of being this close, not so fresh smelling at times.|

We had visited for the elephants but Miss K discovered a hatching chick in the Hatchery. We stood there watching this little guy push his way out of an egg for as long as we could but he still had a way to go...I think this was definately something the kids will remember.
We got to do a few more E themed activities. The ones I got pictures of were making more of 1+1+1=1 cute ABC flashcards and the gluing elephants into the letter E
Mini Piwi also helped Big Sis with her Measuring project
