Geckos, Reptiles, and a Giveaway!

Do Your Children Love Learning About Reptiles?

Our family loves to study reptiles and zoology! Our nephew Malachi (6) and niece Zolie (2) come to our house everyday for homeschooling with our daughter Briyah (10). All three of them love being young scientists as they explore God’s creation.

Recently, our nephew Malachi won a contest at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis to pick out a name for the New Caledonian Giant Gecko. He named the gecko Digger, which the museum staff said was a perfect name as Digger loves to burrow into his habitat area. Malachi won tickets for his family to have a day at the museum and he was so excited to meet Digger up close!

Digger is a friendly gecko. He is much larger than most of the geckos in the exhibit.

We learned that most geckos cannot blink. Digger, like other geckos, lick their eyeballs to keep them clean.

Did you know that geckos have different pupils? Some geckos have slits in their pupils when they are nocturnal. Other geckos have round pupils to see in the daytime. Both pupils look a little creepy.

If you are within driving distance to the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis,  you can meet Digger and all of the other geckos in the Gecko Exhibit which runs to May 15th!

We had so much fun visiting the gecko exhibit that we decided to extend our studies at home with the Reptiles Lapbook and Study Guide.

The kids are learning all about reptiles while completing this hands-on lapbook. Even though the lapbook is geared for 2nd grade and above, Malachi as a kindergarten student narrates what he learns about reptiles and I copy them down on his mini-booklets. Even Zolie, who is only two years old, enjoys learning by coloring, looking at reptile books, observing reptiles, and playing with reptile toys. You are never too young to join the fun of learning!

Giveaway #2: Four History of Us Binder-Builders

Our second giveaway of the evening is a set of four History of the US Binder-Builders (instant downloads).

Are you familiar with our Binder-Builders, which are a unique fusion of lapbooking and notebooking in a 3-ring binder? You can watch our video on our A Journey Through Learning channel.

History of the US Book 1: The First Americans Binder-Builder

History of the US Book 2: Making Thirteen Colonies Binder Builder

History of the US Book 3: From Colonies to Country Binder-Builder

History of the US Book 4: The New Nation Binder-Builder

History is chronological and so is this 10-book series. These small books are easy to read, and there’s none of the intimidation that comes with behemoth texts. A History of US is an attempt to break the textbook mold. As one child reader wrote, the books seem like “an action movie.”

Along with the Binder-Builder, your child will be need the corresponding A History of Us text by Joy Hakim. For instance, if your child is doing A History of Us, Book 1, you will use the Binder-Builder that is made for Book 1. Your child will read a chapter in the A History if Us text and then work in the Binder-Builder doing a vocabulary page and lapbook booklet for that chapter. By using the Binder-Builder along with A History of Us, your child will have a hands-on resource to record what he/she is learning while reading through the book.

One blessed winner who enters our giveaway will win this set of four Binder-Builders!
