First Day of Homeschool 2013
Yesterday was our first day of the new homeschool year! YAY!!!! I thought I would share a few of the things we did.
For some reason all of our cats seem to LOVE Cailey's school work! They never bother any of the other kids! LOL
If you recognize Cailey's dress, it's the Red, White and Blue dress (click for the tutorial).
Here is Colin doing some streak tests from the Young Scientist Club kit # 7 - Minerals. (These are MUCH cheaper through Amazon and you get 3 kits in one.) (Amazon was down while I was working on this post.)
Here, Cailey is examining rocks from our trip to Pigeon Forge on the 4th of July.
The Rocks and Minerals unit that I put together can be found HERE.
Cailey and Colin are drawing maps! This is the first activity in the book Marco Polo for Kids.
Here are their finished "mythical maps"! Colin's is the top and Cailey's the bottom. They had SOOOO much fun with this activity! I didn't think they would ever be finished! LOL
