. . . and trolleys too. Don't forget the submarine. What a fun day at the museum!! We are officially into the U-505 and wartime spies. Our most recent vocabulary word is double agent. This was a wonderful outing for Conrad and Max. I loved the submarine tour and visualized a whole new reality of military life. We got some submarine and spy books from the library and all of this inspired a game of "Spy". Conrad got some spy gear for his birthday and we spied throughout the whole house. I was never quite sure who we were spying on. We were also looking for clues. It was fun to see all three boys following each other and making every day things seem like clues to something mysterious.
We didn't spend much time in the human body exhibit, but happened to be standing next to the male specimen showing the human body without skin. Little boys have no problem exclaiming exactly what they see with the vocabulary they have. . .
