I wanted to start taking time to record some of the fun projects we're doing in school....so here goes!
Luna will be doing a "Spiral" theme idea with themes in beach, sky and sea. We will spend a week looking in these three areas and a week looking in nature around our house!
Week One: Spiral on the Beach....
We will take a look at different shells and how the sea creatures create spirals for homes. How they move into and how hermit crabs find new homes.
Week Two: Spiral in to Ocean...
We will look at waves and ocean swirl patterns created by currents
Week Three: Spirals in ocean floor...
A closer look at the ocean floor and the animals that live there. How camoflauge plays a role in keeping enemies away and how spirals can do that in fishes and other sea floor creatures.
Some of the resources include:
Jennie Fulbrights NotebookPages for Apolgia ocean zoology
Homeschoolshare's Animal studies
Shell collectionsjan Brett's Shell Rounding math
Charlotte Mason shell sorting
More art ideas with spirals & shells
Rayne will be doing a "Seuss" theme month along with her "Alphabugs" theme for school projects.
