updated my Curriculum post to share what we finally
decided on for Science.
It actually took me quite a while to decide on what to do for science.
And I still don’t know what we’ll be doing for the ENTIRE year,
but I’ve finally got a good handle on the first few weeks!
I looked a a whole bunch of curriculum, but one day I was walking through
a bookstore and I spotted this:
Children’s Human Body Encyclopedia
The price was $9. and somewhere the frugal homeschooler
in me was inspired.
I had been looking at $30-$50 curriculum
and I just couldn’t resist the under $10 appeal…
I bought two of them, one for Sissy and one for Bubba.
(This will be our first year where each child has the same text book!)
I figured we’d just go through each topic together,
reading out of the text, and I’d supplement with our
own discussions (about God’s design) and our own
crafts and activities.
Later on I found these little gems to add to our Science Curriculum:
My First Human Body Activity Book
(This has amazing coloring pages of body systems)
This book has reproducible patterns you can use to make
you’re own life size human body diagram.
(I got this one as an e-book)
So using these resources we’re going to be making a Human Body Science journal!
Starting off with SKIN!!
We’ve had a blast reading all about our skin,
and the kids have been loving all the different activities we’ve been
doing alongside them. We do science two days a week,
so over the last two weeks we had quite of bit of fun things to
add to our Science Journals.
I posted all of our activities and links to what we did on our main site,
but here’s a sneak peek at a few projects:
Come take a second to see the rest of our skin activities!
Oh, and if you see a little blue pencil in the title of the activity,
it’s something that can be added into your science journal!
Hopefully the ideas will inspire you to make you’re own journals!
And Stay Tuned……next up is the Human Brain!!
