It's hard to believe we already have a month of school in the books! I don't have much to show for it since it feels like we have barely started but I thought I would share some of the things we have been doing for Science!
We have been using The Good & The Beautiful Kingdoms & Classifications unit. It is recommended for K-6th with extensions for 7th-8th graders. To be honest, it is a bit over Maggie's head and so I would definitely say this is plenty of science for my Jr High girl.
We really use the lesson material as a "jumping off point" and take it where we want to go...going deeper for the bigger girl and enjoying picture books for the younger.
The Good & The Beautiful Science encourages the creation of a "science wall." It includes definitions, matching, and other handy things. We love our little science station...
We've already put a lot of miles on our new microscope...!
Kayley has also been raising 2 Polyphemus moths that she acquired at Insect-o-Rama. They are both still alive. One has gone into it's cocoon. Hopefully they both make it through the winter.
Science is a favorite subject around here for sure! We only have a few more lessons left of Kingdoms & Classifications and are looking forward to our next science study on The Human Body!
Thanks for swinging by to see what we have been up to! :)
