I had an ambitious plan this morning - a trip to the Museum of Natural History explore their exhibit about DNA and chimpanzees. Perfect! I hoped to make time also for the children to make "chimp bracelets" and "human bracelets" as a fun way to compare strands of DNA. That part will have to wait until Thursday, as the field trip took the entire hour.
Many thanks to Jill for being a great parent volunteer, and to our own Karen B. for shuttling us on the bus. I don't think we could have made it work if I had to park, so this was a lovely treat.
Kudos to the museum for making this information so fun and accessible for even very young scholars:
And no trip would be complete without the penny roll down the spiral wishing well!
