A Sloth! Yes, A sloth! Crossing our driveway. It was looking for a new tree to climb. It was only 2 feet away from us, and we could easily see it's long body as it stretched itself to climb. Along with the white-faced monkey shenanigans, this is one of our favorite memories of Costa Rica.
The following day, Ela, on her own initiative, started her own sloth research and poster.
Here are 6 things she learned about sloths:
1. All Sloth have 3 toes.
2. Rigor mortis impacts sloths.
3. The Feces Fact
4. Sloths are not slow everywhere.
5. Sloths are not known for smelling good.
6. Sloths and their Babies
Sometimes I feel like we're slacking on the homeschool front. Then, Ela does something like this, and I feel like it's working. I'm proud of her efforts. She taught me more than I knew about sloths, and hopefully you learned something too.
