Endangered Species – Science Project

This is another work that we were occupied with in the month of December. Adi was asked to do build an enclosure for an endangered species. She picked Black footed faret and was given two weeks to build this enclosure. We visited the many recommended store Hobby Lobby for supplies but you could buy the entire store for the same price you will spend on the school project aisle. Miniature trees and grasses were costing so high that I dropped the idea of buying miniatures there and came back home with empty hand. On the other side, this girl was threatening me as “Oh you will spend for this and that but not for my school project”.

I then asked her to explain the plan in a piece of paper and took few days to figure out cost effective way to build the model. A visit to the dollar store, walmart, small branches from bushes near our home and supplies from our pantry were more than enough to build the model.

Aluminium foil on the over bridge to give steel look was Adi’s idea.We worked on it for almost 3 to 4 days to make it perfect. I was impressed with Adi’s dedication in this project. Needless to day, she received an A+ for this project.


Summary by Adi:


P.S: While drafting this post I was not able to recollect the name “enclosure”. So, asked this girl about it. Here is our convo:

Self: Pappa, what was that you built for black footed faret?
Adi: Why you ask?
Self: Just like that, please tell me na..
Adi: “Enclosure”. Why would you ask “just like that”. You upto something amma. Hold on, are you posting about this somewhere?
She doesn’t know about this blog yet or so I believe. I am not sure how long will I be able to keep this blog away from her. Let’s see..

    • yeah I think so too 😦 Today, when we were in the car, on a casual convo with M, I mentioned the word blog and she immediately snapped as “Amma do you have a blog? really?” I somehow changed the topic. Can’t hide for too long I guess..
