Earlier this week, Kyri participated in an Explore class at Friedrich Wilderness Park. This month’s theme was Philopodia, the love of feet. Kyri learned all about feet, how they differ among animals, what they are used for, and how some animals you might not expect actually have feet too!. She also learned about a variety of tracks left by different animals. She made a plaster mold of a porcupine track to bring home, and made several rubbings of various animal tracks.
We will be attending the remaining Explore classes this Spring. We have wonderful homeschool resources available through our Natural Areas and Parks and Recreation. Homeschoolers here in San Antonio should definitely take advantage of some of the many offerings. The Spring schedule of classes offered through San Antonio Parks and Rec are here; many classes have size limits so RSVPs are required.
