This is why I love having kids in the age of information when everything is at your fingertips - science lesson on camouflage? Just pull up YouTube and watch a chameleon change through several different colors right then with your very own eyes - or an octopus swimming through the depths of the ocean for that matter!
Yesterday, Hope and I were reading a story book from the library "Mousekin's Mystery" - in which several animals take on a glow due to some luminescent mushrooms. Hmmm...I thought....are there really mushrooms that glow in the dark? Pulled out the computer and learned something new with my daughter! So fun, I had no idea!
