We are still toying with the idea of homeschooling in the next year or two. But at the moment, I have a question on a project that I would like to work on, mostly with my 6 year old. She loves butterflies and we went to see the 3D Flight of the Butterfly movie at our local museum and their butterfly day that had some cute activities. In August we are going up to Michigan to see family and as part of that trip we are going to Mackinaw Island and to their butterfly house. I would love to do some continuing activities and work with the 6 year old leading up to the visit, learning the different species of butterflies that are at the butterfly house, etc. We also already did the butterfly hatching kit just a few weeks ago where we watched the caterpillars make chrysslis and then turn into butterflies. Does any one have any suggestions on strategies or how to approach this project with her leading up to our visit? I have looked at the butterfly house's website so I have an idea of what species they have there, but that's as far as I've gotten so far.
