Oklahoma History Center

 Yesterday we took a rainy road trip to Oklahoma City.

 We went to Homeschool Day at the Oklahoma History Center.

 The last time we visited, Jack looked like this.  It has been a while!

 There were lots of tables set up all around the lobby with speakers and activities.  Here Alice is hearing about how they make some of the displays in the museum.

 Giving animals their appropriate dinners at the zoo table.


 They each made a cartouche at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art table.

 At the moulage table they got to try to make their own wounds.

 They designed their own brands.

 They looked for fossils...

 ...and then tried to identify them.

 Learning about blood pressure

 Trying to write with a pen and ink

 At the archaeology table

 Civil War soldiers


 Learning about the Dust Bowl


 We also spent some time looking at the regular exhibits.  One of the ladies who did a lot of the concept art for Alice in Wonderland was from McAlester.

 When Jack was 1 I didn't think I would be able to get him out of the trolley without a fit.  Thankfully he was much more compliant at 10!

 This is a fun place for kids because there is so much they can climb on and touch and try on!

 It was a great day!

We are definitely planning to come back next year!
