We have taken a Charlotte Mason approach to our homeschool science as far as nature walks, nature journals, and learning through experiences rather than books.
Our Animal Encounters posts will share these fun zoology lessons and experiences.
Weekends in Naples was busy taking out our boat into the Gulf of Mexico. We loved scuba diving and snorkeling behind the boat. During majority of these trips we were overly excited to see dolphins!
We always saw more than one, and on one exciting trip we saw a small baby dolphin with his mama!! We couldn’t be more in awe of the moment than seeing this family together. What a special treat to witness these marine mammals so close!
They were beautiful and playful. Often times they’d swim hear the boat and jump out of the water. We were so impressed because they could get really high into the air. A little personal acrobatic show. This experience really made my boys more aware of respecting our oceans and beaches.
You can print our dolphins worksheet if you’re learning about these neat animals.
