Well dear readers, I've been knocked down by a sudden and nasty case of strep throat, so please excuse the brevity of this post. Even though the antibiotics have sucked away all my energy, I didn't want to break my chain of continuous daily posts. And because I vow to put something practical and useful in every single post, today I'll just direct you to this great collection of animal coloring book images, courtesy of National Geographic.
The pictures are detailed and realistic, just as you'd expect from NG. I particularly like the Monarch butterfly, as it shows the insect's whole life cycle. I'd like to color some of these myself for display in my classroom. It'll give me something to do over the next couple of days, in between the chicken soup, penicillin, and wild swings in body temperature. I believe in the healing qualities of a 120-count box of Crayolas. Don't you?
