Wood Magic & World Forestry Discovery Museum Today!

We went to Wood Magic and The World Forestry Discovery Museum and learned so much about wood that it almost made our heads hurt!

We learned that difference between White Oak and Red Oak.
Ask your 3rd Grader which kind they would kind they would want to build a boat out of?

We learned some types of wood are permeable while other types are impermeable.

We learned that permeable wood lets air through.

We learned that we use every part of a tree!

We saw a really cool portable saw.
We learned that wood is actually in a lot of the food that we eat!

After lunch we were off to the World Forestry Discovery Museum!

There were lots of fun exhibits!

We were able to see all of the different instruments made out of wood . .

. . . some really scary masks.

Everyone had a great time!

Thank you to Ida's Dad, Aaron's Mom and Dad,  Auston's Mom and Ashley's Mom for coming with us!  We couldn't have done it without you today!
