Here is a review of our homeschool week, complete gross and cool eye dissection pictures. : )
Miss M is reading the novel Star of Light, and she did a heap of additional unit reading this week. Our unit focus was Northern Africa and we tied in a study of deserts, since the Sahara is such an important element of North Africa. Began coloring thematic maps, following instructions in Trail Guide to World Geography. In addition, it was fun to read about many exotic animals of Africa.
I taught a co-op science class, 'How the Eye Works,' and we learned the main parts and functions of the eye. After a couple of activities, the kids got to see a cow's eye which I dissected for them. (As Providence would have it, this ties in with our study in a wierd way -- a main character in Star of Light is blind!)
It was a busy, fun week here. Thanks for stopping by!
Oh yeah, Math, Spanish and English are going fine, too. We did DO them, just nothing exciting to report. :)
