Reading, Learning, and Exploring
We learned about the population - did you know there are about 4,115, 771 people in New Zealand and that there are 20 x that many sheep? Yup. Lots of sheep. They do a lot of farming, and fishing.
Zz is for sheep ZONE
We read about their volcanoes and whale sharks and so much more -like ooZy volcanoes.
Zz is for Zacchaeus
In our Master Books - A is for Adam book - we read about:
Zz is for Zip - how quickly Jesus will return to take back His own- those whose names are written in the Lambs book of life. (which reminds us of all those lambs in New Zealand) It gives us a chance to pray for those around the world when we realize Jesus died for them too.
Zz is for Zacchaeus - we sang the song about Zacchaeus . . . was a wee little man, a wee little man was he - he climbed up in a sychamore tree to see what he could see - Jesus said, "Zacchaeus, you come down, for I'm going to your house today."

Zz is for Zoom - virtually to the International Space Station
The kids did simulated real jobs - just like the astronauts do - even driving a rover on the moon
Our AdventureZ weren't over yet - we headed for the FL Aquarium
Zz is for Zealous - the boys worked on their photography and were really excited about it! The shots above were some of theirs.
We learned that even the fish need to catch some Zz's
