"I want one!"

We were like oversized 3 year olds in an oversized sandbox. The stream table was a very exciting activity where we watched a scale version of a creek or river as it evolves. After observing how a river forms a delta and meanders down the path of least resistance, we were allowed to manipulate the stream table. Eagerly, we made tributaries, dams, loches, and other structures to see how rivers form and why they behave the way they do. Rivalries formed over who would get the water for their "projects". Eventually, after learning both about water systems and what we wanted for our birthdays, we packed up to go electro fishing.

I bet this was Aimee's favorite, reminiscent of Montessori preschool. All looks fun, hope the storms stay away.
