Science Sunday: We’re getting a dog



Isn’t he just the cutest little thing?  We’ll be getting him very shortly after you read this, and we’ve spent the last two weeks learning about dogs, and how to care for them in preparation.

So, here’s a true preschool friendly science lesson.

We practiced walking the dog and taking him out to go potty.

We read a lot of books, and watched one video.  Okay, we’ve watched this Reading Rainbow more times than I can count.


We interviewed Aunt Jenn, who gave us lots of great advice.  Aunt Jenn has 3 dogs, so she knows a lot (and gave me some great advice as well).


And finally, we went to the store and bought what we needed.  You can’t really tell, but that’s the toy Batman decided the dog needed.  “And he can cuddle it, so he won’t feel lonely.”  I love kid reasoning.

How about you, have you ever turned a life event into a lesson?  I have to admit that’s how we get a lot of our science.
