We are still loving doing the Amanda Bennett unit studies. I decided to let Nadia choose the next one and she picked “Astonishing Animals”. This unit was so fun! We learned about Lemurs, Loggerhead Turtles, Wolverines, Komodo Dragons and Adelie Penguins. There were so many interesting things in this unit about how uniquely created each animal was for it’s specific environment. We were able to get a lot of cool books from the library that went along with each day. We also did a craft for each animal.

Our zoo has Komodo dragons.


And ring tailed lemurs (these guys are hard to get a good photo of so I really like this one).

Nadia’s favorite thing she learned was the wolverine’s have padded feet so they don’t sink in the snow. And look at the cute little penguin she made.

This was a great unit study to marvel on God’s wonderful creation.
