Today we continued our journey into Egypt with a little conversation about eggs. Because of course the desert has mostly reptiles and not very many mammals. We watched a short video on all the things that hatch from eggs and then assembled our very own egg books. Then it was time for some FUN! An egg hunt of a different sort. But first everyone in the bathroom while the teacher works her magic ;) (I apologize that the pictures are a bit out of order, but you get the idea.)

Hope you all have a Happy Easter and Passover!

Snakes, birds, frogs, scorpions, crocodiles and a platypus too!

Next stop...

Today we continued working on our passports/travel journals as we packed up to leave Australia. 

Our next destination, Egypt. We looked at the map and discussed different types of habitats that we might find in Egypt, which includes marine, river, desert, and more. We looked at photos and discussed the pyramids briefly. 

We also took another plane ride, which this time included checking in with our passports and also having our luggage inspected for safety. I love all the vocabulary that we are using right now. This time I was able to step back a little more and observe as the children handled the flight on their own.

Practicing pyramid building....
