The other morning 4 year old Sweet Pea and I found a cicada exoskeleton and he got curious.
All on his own he closely examined it in his hands, then started voicing his questions and observations about it.
Ultimately he decided to see if it would still ‘stick to the tree’. As you can see above it does!
And Mom did nothing
I loved just standing by listening to his observations and questions. He wasn’t really talking to me, so I kept quiet for the most part.
I love it when some learning comes as a result of hands-on-investigating!
