I was the Mom-in-Charge of these three 1st graders for their field trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science this week. We've been before, but it's fun to see what most interested the girls this visit - the gemstones. Even though we spent the most time in the gemstone area, we also managed to see the sea shells, dinosaurs, wildlife, and chemistry exhibits, in addition to the Alaska IMAX movie.
They were able to sift through some soil from the Bryan-College Station area (about an hour from Houston) and look for sea shells. It was pretty cool to see them realize that this part of the country used to be under water.
