Wildlife Wednesday - M is for Mantis (who prays)

Wildlife Wednesdays

 We are celebrating wildlife with Master Books and Creation Conversations. If you haven't heard of Creation Conversations - well, I'd hate to see you miss out on such a great resource. If you are interested in, or teaching God's creation vs. the theory of evolution to your kids - even if you are just curious about the differences and the scientific evidence which leads us to choose creation - it's a wonderful resource. 

You can read my top 10 reasons why we choose creation here. 

Each Wednesday - I'm teaming up with MB/CC and my good friend Kathy Balman from Kathy's Cluttered Mind to bring you fun facts - animal profiles and information interviews with authors and scientists - and a closer look at the fingerprints of God on His creation. 

I hope you are as excited about this as I am. It's a great way to share information to enhance our homeschool studies, to encourage each other in our teaching, and to share the Word through science. Here's a peek at one of our recent adventures: 

Over Thanksgiving weekend my father (Grandad) found a praying mantis outside in the yard. He quickly went to work with the boys getting their aquarium together to house their new friend. 

Our 8 year old announced that it was his belief that this mantis was a pregnant female. 
He was right. 

2 days later - she had prepared an egg sack and began laying her eggs. We've learned a lot about these interesting creatures. Check out the free links and information and be sure to sign up for the giveaway on Wildlife Wednesdays at Creation Conversations
