A day of science

Skylar was so excited. She made an entire bird family all by herself. She saw some birds on Go Diego Go and ran quick as lightening to the school table to create her own bird family. She made one for each family member to use. Very thoughtful : )

Still doing school or as Skylar calls it, fun school. While they run and play outside (phys. ed),
walk the perimeter of the yard looking at rabbits hopping along, roadrunners speeding by, bugs crawling or bats and birds flying over head. (nature study: aka: science : )

We added in our new science materials today

Instead of just doing nature study alone we are using a very modified version of SL K science. I stripped down their schedule, tossed many things from it, added two books we had already and our own science curriculum was born : )

I also went online and found coloring pages to go with each science theme. The girls will do notebooks for science once or twice a week.

Here are some photos of what we did today on our first day.

Arts and crafts, homemade wrapping paper for dad's birthday.
We found this neat lizard outside our window. It was a fast little thing.
Doing some school work at our school table. We saw these amazing dust devils outside.  We just had to look those up and find out more about them.
