Homeschooling: All Things

2013-2013 School Year: Week 16

You know, I found out this week that using a balloon for a helmet may not be the best thing in the world. Wait till you see the pictures below. Anyhow, the kids had a blast making a paper mache helmet even if it was like a hallow basketball on their heads. LOL!!! The whole purpose was to let them have fun while learning how to paper mache and learn about ancient Greek armor. The funny thing is my son chose the color brass to paint his. A nice manly and probably accurate color. My daughter…pink. Well, I guess we have pink armor. LOL

Science was a blast this week. We learned so much about leaves. As you will see from the pictures below it really consumed our week. But it was so well worth it! We were able to find all the leaves we needed right here in our front and back yard. We were able to classify each leaf on our notebook pages. Now for those of you who have read and followed my blog for a while now, you all know my daughter is the one who always says "I don't remember" to everything. Well, not this week. She was raising her hand and answering all the question. I was so proud of her and I think in the back of her mind she was proud of herself! YEA!

We incorporated an art project with our science this week. My son made a chart of the different shapes of leaves and my daughter made a poster of leaf arrangement as well as the anatomy of a leaf. They did such a great job. It took a while but they were so proud of the work they did. We have them hanging in our school room and they have been a great reference all week.

Well, I know it is a short post this week, but it has been a very hard week and I am tired and really wanting to just go lay down. I hope the pictures tell the story well! Have a great week and see you next week.
