This summer I enjoyed reading several books. One of them was a memoir of a young mother who traveled the world in search of natural phenomena. The author wanted to actually experience them, not just observe from a computer far away. Over the course of several years, she observed things like the phosphorescent lagoons in Puerto Rico, the migration of the butterflies in Mexico, incredible lightning storms in Venzuela, and animal migrations in Tanzania, just to name a few. Throughout her travels, the author discovered the wonder in seeing and learning and experiencing new things.
My next several posts will share some phenomenal things I learned or experienced this summer. I’m looking forward to exploring all sorts of phenomenal things this school year with you! When we have opportunity to wonder and ask questions and be amazed at possibilities true learning can take place. What phenomenal things did you experience this summer?
