From Weedon To Brooker

On Friday we headed to Weedon Island for a class on sharks. We arrived early and hiked the long boardwalk trail to get our wiggles out.

The class had different stations where we learned different things about sharks. Some of the stations were teeth, skin, magnetism and measurement. We had fun measuring out all the shark sizes.

On Saturday we picked up Grandma Susie and went to a class at Brooker Creek preserve about Florida ferns. I was amazed to learn there were so many different ferns!

We learned that the green stuff in the ponds is called water spangles. I always called it duck weed.

I knew of about 5 ferns but was excited to learn about so many more.

There were even hidden ferns that they just discovered and added to the species list of known ferns in the preserve.

At the end we played with ant lions and learned about other insects in the ground.
