This week we were able to have some science fun! My mother in law surprised us with a new microscope! It was on my wish-list since I saw the value of a nice microscope while teaching biology to my 9th grader. We pulled it out and looked at frog blood, a fly leg, human skin cell, and more. These all were from the prepared slide set we got with the microscope. I can’t wait to work more with it!
My younger girls started working again in their Elemental Science book. We started last year and then took a very long summer break–lol. We only have a couple more units until we are finished. This week they started learning about air. They made a fan, did several activities with a plastic straw and more. I really enjoy this curriculum for young children. The curriculum uses Science Play as one of the spine books, and it is filled with fun, easy-to-do science activities for young children.
We also have spent some time learning about birds. I need to go buy more bird seed so that we can easily view the birds from the comfort of our warm home. 😉 I am looking forward to warmer weather when we’ll head out to our local state park for more bird watching adventures!
Life-School 101: When 2yr. olds chew gum, they will get it in their hair. Instead of pulling out peanut butter, or the scissors, I grabbed my lemon essential oil instead. It worked great getting the gum out and smelled good too! 😉 Such a versatile essential oil to have on hand!
My daughter has continued with her Lexercise tutoring. I am so happy that her reading is improving! Not only that, her spelling and writing skills are improving too!
Well that’s a recap on our week! How did your week go?
