The Flamingo Badge
Step 1 was to find the Troop Leader and ask to see the pictures of the Flamingos.
Step 2 was identifying which Flamingo in the Handbook had an ID tag matching the Flamingo in the Troop Leader’s pictures.
The Troop Leader was very patient with Bella. I noticed she used different approaches depending upon the age of the child, which was great.
Step 3 was to observe the live Flamingos and see if you could find and read any of their ID tags.
Bella just reminded me as I was writing this that if the Flamingo’s tag was on its right leg, that meant he mas a male, and the the left leg signified a female Flamingo. I also remember over hearing that part and I couldn’t tell you if that is exactly right. We may have it reversed, but we do know that you can tell the sex of the Flamingos by which leg their ID tag is on.
What We Thought
I love to learn new things, and I especially love to see my kids learning new things as well. And there’s no reason a little learning can’t take place while you’re on vacation. That’s one of the things I love about Walt Disney World. The Wilderness Explorers interactive experience is a fun way to explore Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It brings some of the focus back to learning more about the world around us and the amazing animals we share it with.
