We did a lot of science this past week or so. A LOT OF SCIENCE.
We weren’t very diligent about completing the experiments in our anatomy science book, so we knocked out several recently.
Here is Elizabeth laughing about how gross it felt sticking her fingers into Jello.
The finished Jello human cell. We then threw it in the sink as it looked so unappetizing. The Skittles “bled” meaning their colors clouded into the Jello. Elizabeth was pretty disgusted.
Elizabeth’s “Alton Brown pose” before dissecting a chicken wing.
The “not so Alton Brown pose”…
We also did music (piano and voice), Latin, math…studied Mongolia, Georgia (the state), history…but alas, no pictures of those. She’s had a much better attitude this week and has been much more helpful with chores and her siblings and completing her school work more diligently.
We’re preparing notebooks for every subject to complete the transfer into Notebooking with our Ambleside curriculum. We’ve used Notebooking loosely, but I really want to rev it up and get her more independent as she heads toward high school. I can’t believe that my baby will be in 6th grade this fall…
Since Daddy is deployed, they offer Parents Days Out once a month. I dropped off the littles and we had ourselves a Mama-Daughter date to the thrift store and lunch at McGrath’s. That was sheer seafood awesomeness.
Elizabeth now has a palate expander to prepare for braces next month. I don’t laugh at her lisps ALL the time…
