Geology rock kit (Smithsonian)
"It was a bit of work, but then I finally got a prize. It's like trying to win a contest, but you finally get a prize for your work. You do hard work at your job and get money for the house -and I got these gems." She found three of the eleven gems, identified them on the map and wrote a report with me (she said the words and I typed).
We did a lot of other things, too -- math, reading, art and writing in her reading comprehension workbook. She helped Daddy assemble and mail the bills. She spent an hour on a 'RV hovercraft ice cream truck' with doors, windows, roof and ice cream symbols inside it for the 'workers counter'.
She has a great idea for tomorrow - looking up info about cave drawings.
