We have been having many day trips to visit various parts of New Zealand and we try to find learning opportunities in them. We learn about birds, habitat, electricity, fluid mechanics. Fun stuff. Then, while driving by one of the numerous paddocks where cows are grazing, we hear a squawk of delight from the back.
“Oh My GOSH!! I just saw one cow jump on the back of another cow! They look like they are playing piggy back.”
Luckily for us parents, we haven’t started the Life Cycle of the Cow lesson yet.
“Yes,” I say, “Cows like playing piggyback.”
