We had a fantastic time with the family and also did a number of terrific outings. Here are a few things we did:
Microbe Exhibit (eastern Tennessee off of I-81 and down I-26 about 5 or 10 miles) The other exhibit at Gray's Fossil Museum that I talked about a couple days ago.
|This interactive castle showed us how our body has defenses just like the castle. Each part of the castle moved and explained how mucus, acids, etc. help keep our body safe from invasion.|
|Oh no! Microbes in the kitchen!|
Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park (east Tennessee)
|We had just finished up a big unit on the frontiersmen (Daniel Boone, the Wilderness Road, etc.) and had read four or five books about Davy Crockett (plus learned the song!). We enjoyed our brief visit to see Davy Crockett's (reconstructed) cabin.|
