The Squirrel Parts

squirrel parts illustrationHow we saw the inside of the squirrel is that Papa hunted a squirrel. We took apart the body. I was grossed out a little. I touched it with gloves. It had humungous teeth. We were also surprised in it because it had a lot of fat in it. It had fat all around the kidneys.

And Papa cut open the liver and the heart and the stomach. It had stored seeds in its belly for the winter I think.

We kept the meat to eat.

I wrote this picture because I was just really interested in the squirrel.

How I Homeschool

We found a crawfish when we were hiking. It just molted.

Homeschooling means that you have school at home. Your mom teaches you different things with math books. I learn by sounding out and looking at the pictures. Now I’m just really good at reading.

Go to a museum called the Historical Society because you can see lots of bones about different things that lived in the past. I just like going to museums to see all over the world what it was like in the past.

Sometimes I watch nature shows that teach me about the world. I go outside and make discoveries. I like taking hikes, it’s also a good use of energy.

I just like homeschooling a lot.

Birds!

We see birds outside. There’s a house finch and chickadee and cardinal and sparrow and junco.

We made a chart to remember the birds. Every day we mark off the birds that we see. We have the most of the cardinal.

I like that they are pretty and the pretty colors.
