OSC "Wonderful Water" Homeschool Science Day

We headed to the Orlando Science Center for one of their homeschool Science programs....titles "Wonderful Water"
 Our first segment was in the lab...there were 4 stations set up that we rotated through.

adaptations for water life
thick leaves vs thin leaves for water absorbency and which would be best in or around a body of water

and we had a visitor!

organisms in water and algae...viewed through the microscope.

PH testing...and which levels are ideal and liveable for frogs.

 Then we went into the exploration zone:

 Then to the wildlife area


the inner workings of a snail!

the boys found a roach...eww.

After the film on coral reefs we went back to the exploration area and played a game of life-size chess!
it was a lot of fun!

We had a WONDERFUL day at the Science Center. It was FILLED with interactive, hands-on learning and experiencing! We will DEFINITELY be signing up for another one of their Homeschool Science days!
