Summer Fun Day - Expedition Earth

We did another fun day, this time the theme was expedition earth.  I don't have a lot of pictures, but we read a book about the layers of Earth, and one about recycling.  Then we went on a nature scavenger hunt in the woods behind our house. 

 (I can't wait till the bangs grow in all the way!)
When we got back, we had a snack - the old favorite DIRT, or chocolate pudding with oreo crumbs and gummy worms.  

We picked up some leaves and leaf rubbings.  And we scavenged for rocks and painted rock buddies.  I didn't get any pictures of the painting, because it was hard to keep all 6 kids in control of their paint at the same time.

At the end we tried to do a volcano in a bottle with baking soda and vinegar, but it didn't seem to work as well as I remember in school...will have to work on that one!
