We had a scienc-ey week! It was a nice change of pace from Sonlight. All of the model directions and notebook pages are from BJU Science 4. We pretty much followed the lessons exactly as laid out in the teacher's manual. There is an opening activity to stimulate interest, a reading, discussion questions, and sometimes a second activity or experiment. Love, love, love BJU science!
Thanks for stopping by! Next week's topic: China.
