You know you are a homeschooling family if vacation time means seeking out learning opportunities in the city you are visiting!
Life is school to us, so on our way to the airport, we stopped at our science museum and renewed our membership in order to use it on our vacation at more museums!
We visited the LA Natural History Museum and the La Brea tar pits. At the Natural History Museum, there was a special engagement with various reptiles. There was a baby alligator that is owned by a company that provides animals for movie sets. We were able to hold and touch several different animals including chameleons, alligators, and snakes.
The next day we went to the La Brea Tar Pits.
We saw skeletons of Mastodons, Dire Wolves, and Saber-Toothed cats.
