World Turtle Day


According to my special days calendar, May 23 is World Turtle Day!  I have found some great free resource links to follow as we learn about turtles in our homeschool!

Lapbook from here

Much about turtles, conservation, rescue, and more here

More cool turtle stuff  here

Look inside a turtle’s shell!                                                                     

List with photos of different types of turtles with quick facts                               

Turtle myths and legends

Something challenging for an art project. Origami instructions

    Sister Betty Jo, thanks for stopping by my site, I truly appreciate it especially since I’m so new to THIS style media! On to your post above; I thought BING was just putting pretty pictures on my desktop!! Who would have known!? My wife and I share a great big love for ALL of God’s creatures, we watch many of the cable channels that deal with nature, animals and such so your links were a complete joy!!
    God bless so much, Sis (in Christ!)
