Playing "Mary Anning"

Alexandra had recently received a "dinosaur egg." To uncover the toy dinosaur hidden inside, you use a chisel and hammer. I thought it was so cute when she brought it outside to play with today and said that she was Mary Anning.

First of all, I'm grateful that I homeschool and so I know who Mary Anning is - I didn't before I studied about her with my daughter. Secondly, I'm grateful that my daughter knows who Mary Anning is and enjoys learning about wonderful people, especially women, of the past!

Knowing Mary Anning is one great reason to homeschool. I really enjoyed Fossil Girl by Catherine Brighton.
