This morning we had a very special treat! It’s DNA day, and one of our Parents who is a Scientist presented us with a book and special project. The children listened to a story about DNA, and then each child chose either the Little Brown Bat or the White Tailed Deer to look at its DNA code. The children created bracelets with the code of the animal they chose.
I am so appreciative of the work that went in to this special project. We were introduced to a woman scientist. In the past this has been a male dominated career choice. I’m always looking for role models to broaden the scope of career choices for all of my children. Both boys AND girls should be able to choose careers that they are passionate about.
Also this parent knows that we are passionate about the Little Brown Bat and Deer. It was a powerful lesson!
