Science In Our Back Yard

Isaac was doing his outside chores when he happened up on this big thing! Isn't that cool!!
He couldn't wait to share it with the rest of us (after he made sure there were no living hornets in there). The younger kids and I have learned about the paper wasp and this was a great example of their nest. 
Here is the inside, see all the little rooms (cells)? You can see how paper thin the walls are like the paper wasp nests. It is wonderful to be able to touch what you have been learning about...hands on learning here!
This was really huge! Think about all the time and dedication it takes these creatures to build this massive nest. Wonder how many rooms are in there.
Here is a picture of one of the dead hornets that were inside. God is amazing and so is His creation!!
Thank you Lord for sharing Your creation with us!
