In addition to her Oregon Trail Badge, which is nearly complete, Anna is also working on her GSOSW Zoological Brownie Badge. Yesterday, I shared her hippo habitat, and today I’m sharing her second activity— identifying herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores from a local zoo. Anna chose Wildlife Safari as her “zoo,” and a poster-project made from her own photos as the second step toward her badge.
She already made a set of marbles with her troop, but she wanted to try and make fancier multi-colored ones. So Julia bought a big container of air-dry clay and a packet of food coloring. We broke off a few pieces, added coloring, and soon had pink, green, blue, and yellow clay.
First, she rolled out the clay into long skinny “snakes.”
