Trains are pretty amazing machines don't you think? Paco had a great time at the train park this week. He saw lots of different trains but his favorite was the Old Steam Train. "CHOO CHOO". Do you have a train park where you live?
You don't have to have a train park to do Paco's latest activity, you just have to know your math! Download his Choo Choo Math worksheet and see how many cars you can complete. Good luck.
Paco is at it again: out and about exploring nature! This time it was in Zion National Park. National Parks and State Parks are great places to explore. Have you ever visited any near your home? Even if you don't have National or State Parks near you, any park, like city parks and neighborhood parks, are great places to explore.
Paco is sharing his Nature Trail Scavenger Hunt this week. Just print the activity sheet below and then head outside! Find a nice trail or path to explore and get hunting. How many of these fun items do you think you can find?
Paco was feeling pretty silly this week! Did you get his postcard? He showed off his latest trick, a handstand (or maybe it's a wing stand?). If you've never done a handstand you can get some good practice starting with your head, doing a head-stand! Trying a headstand up against a wall will help you with your balance. Have you ever tried one?
This week Paco made a fun activity that makes you use your head in two ways:
1. As part of the game board.
2. For guessing and giving clues!
