International Rock Flipping Day

We all know that today is the anniversary of one of the worst days in U.S. history, but the date also has a more fun side. It’s International Rock Flipping Day—a time to celebrate all those critters that live under rocks, as well as the natural curiosity that inspires us to take a closer look at the world around us.

All you have to do is go outside and look under a rock or two. Then record what you see by drawing, painting, taking photographs or writing about it. (If you live in  a place where there might be poisonous creatures under there, like scorpions or snakes, you might want to use a stick to flip the rocks.) When you’re done, carefully return the rock to its original position.

It’s fun and easy and you just might meet some pretty cool critters.
