Summer Camp: Zoology

We kicked off the summer break with a bang by hosting Zoology Camp this week! Our campers learned how to classify an animal, what the majors differences were between classifications, made some awesome crafts and wrapped it all up with a trip to the El Paso Zoo today. These kiddos are so smart, I am quite proud of them and their hard work this week. 

Summer is almost here!

Hi Lifelong Learners. There are only 6 weeks left of school! My mind is boggled at how quickly this school year is going past. Have you made your summer plans yet? Do you intend to fill your days with reading, playing outside with friends, staying up way too late and sleeping in until noon?
If you haven't made plans to travel, sleep, or game away your whole summer, please consider joining us for some fun and educational summer camps. A full list of camps, their dates and prices can be found on the camps page of our website. We will be learning and playing together all summer long. Hope to see you here!

And, That's A Wrap!

What a FUN (and educational) summer we've had! We've gazed at the stars and other celestial beings and traveled to White Sands to enjoy the full moon up close and personal. We have explored our way through Zoology Camp while learning about all the classifications of animals and trekked through the zoo to identify each kind. We've engineered our way through Mean Machines Camp so we could build a Rube Goldberg Machine. We've peeked through our safety goggles at Mad Scientists Camp while decoding secret messages, separating colors with chemicals, and blowing up Diet Coke with Mentos. And we painted, sculpted and splattered our way through Art Appreciation Camp while learning about some famous artists and their unique styles.

Until next year, my smart little campers!

Zoology Camp Wrap Up

Mr. T finished the week of Zoology Camp by learning about birds and fish, reptiles and amphibians, and a day spent on invertebrates, even though the kiddos mostly wanted to talk about bugs. On Friday, everyone packed a lunch and headed to the El Paso Zoo. We had a ball, with most of the parents joining us, too. The students enjoyed seeing the animals they'd been studying all week and many others species as well.
