We have been learning about DNA and RNA and doing lots of fun activities to better understand in addition to lots of reading and watching videos.
I found a site that helps create your name in DNA which you can look up here
|We watched several videos to further explain DNA and RNA and how it all works.|
We plan to spend another week working on this and our next lab is to create DNA with real fruit and maybe even from our own body:) We will see what turns out.
In Art the boys are learning about Faith Ringold and completing few art projects. We use Meet the Masters as a base and then we add to it as we can. We find we are spending about two weeks on each artist to learn about their life and to do two different art projects, one from meet the masters and one that I find on my own.
|Some of the books we looked at to better understand this artist|
|Did you know Mike Venezia books now come in Video form! The boys loved that!|
|Not only is Faith Ringgold an artist but she is also an author|
|Worked on the Meet the Master art work|
|Boys finished projects.|
|The boys found a quilt pattern of an animal that they like|
For Literature we have been reading Alice in Wonderland and learning about Nonce and Portmanteau words using our Lightening Literature program.
|We had fun looking up these types of words and doing a few fun activities to go with the lesson.|
After our lessons we had a few extra minutes so the boys decided to teach us about video games and even gave us Moms a quiz. Luckily we passed only missed one question between us:)

another busy week is done:)
