For science, we talked about soil. We watched a show about composting and collected leaf litter to examine. We also scooped soil into a jar and added water to watch the different layers of the soil separate. We also made a layered snack showing the different soil levels (marshmallows for bedrock, Cheerios for subsoil and cocoa Krispies for the topsoil/humus). And the kids had fun playing in a big dirt pile.
For math, we talked alot about patterns and made some of our own patterns. We went on a walk and found lots of patterns in nature too. Since Hazel was learning about the letter B, we made butterflies with some pretty patterns too.
We also belong to a co-op that meets one morning a week. They are learning about community helpers so we were all able to go to the fire station this week. It was so fun- the kids both decided they want to be fire fighters now!
It was a pretty fun week. I think we are finding our pace nicely. I know that may change next week when we start adding new things. But I am looking forward to it:).
