Been an interesting week for us. My husband needed to have shoulder surgery this week!
|Luckily the shoulder wasn't as messed up as we thought so after some PT he should be back to normal by Christmas . Right now he is taking a week off from work to heal.|
|Our first project was making a door draft snake since the book talked about winterizing the farm using hay.|
|Next the boys made a bobsled|
|lastly the boys made a mocassin:)|
|While at home MarioFan worked on the free lap book from Homeschool share|
|lap book all completed.|
The boys will begin a new book next week and we are going to try something very different with the boys.
This week we had a field trip at a local University. We attended two classes, the morning class was on Chemistry and the kids performed about 6 different experiments.
|Kids learned about the parts of an atom|
|learned about chemical reactions|
|physical reactions-- here they are melting a styrofoam cup|
|the cup dissolved into a blob|
|They also learned about density|
|even more experiments were performed.|
|making dropper divers.|
The afternoon class was on Fossils/evolution and ecology.
|discussed the age of the earth and layers of earth|
|recreated their own fossil and earth layer|
|discussed the changes of animals and the earth|
|kids were challenged to decide what happened first in the evolution order-- they were a little off:)|
|Also did the rope of life visual as to when things may have occur -- most happening recently.|
It was a great day and the college students were really amazing with the kids. We have another day of science scheduled for next month since MarioFan wanted to do more of these kinds of activities.
It has been a busy week:). Still no news on the car situation, sigh
