Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Museum of Natural History

We traveled to the University of Florida Museum of Natural History for this field trip. It was an incredibly educational and fun excursion. We learned more about and got hands on experience with fossils, prehistoric animals, animal classification, groups/families, sounds & calls, and habitats, as well as other things related to exploration and local/regional history.
