Theme: Vision / The Eye

One day, my daughter started asking me all about our cat's vision.  Could our cat see color?  Could she really see in the dark?  Her curiosity made me think that we should do spend a little time learning about eyes and vision.

Given that my daughter had just turned 4 1/2 at the time, we did not get too technical about eye anatomy.  But we explored our own vision in simple ways, and learned a lot about the vision of animals.  (Animals are always a hit around here!)

The whole theme took about 2 weeks. We usually do one activity a day, depending on what's going on and how everyone is feeling!
