Whoa!! It's been over a month since I have shared a FIAR post! I've been busy posting reviews, Tot School with Little Sis, and fun summer craft ideas that I have neglected sharing with you what T has been up to! We finished T's FIAR 5K school year around the end of May and are now diving into our Summer Schooling plans.
Most snakes lay eggs that feel soft and leathery, so with our own egg and vinegar we had the chance to feel what it would be like because there is no chance we'll be touching an actual snake egg any time soon!
Just add vinegar to a cup with the egg in it. The vinegar ate away at the shell and made it disinegrate.
And left the egg soft and squishy-- just don't push on it too hard unless you want to be covered in egg yolk!!
... and our Social Studies/ History lesson which took us Antiquing! I asked T to be in charge of taking pictures and this is the best one I have of the "oldies" we found ; ) We also spotted a wood stove, trolls (hello 90's!!), old kitchen utensils, 60's furniture, etc. etc.!! It was definitely a fun field trip!
Comparing/ Contrasting between Then & Now
For art, we did an "I Spy" activity...
For our math lesson, I intended to do an activity with a 'make-your-own' scale, but we didn't have the materials on hand that day (organization hasn't been my strong suit lately!), so instead we figured out how many gallons of milk T weighed.
Okay, okay... not exactly the lesson outlined in the book... but it worked ; )
Stay tuned for our last two rows!
