We began our day with books!! We are learning with Hannah while she’s visiting from Lesotho. She and Tugi took turns reading to each other.
They decorated cupcakes to celebrate Tugi’s coming birthday.
In the afternoon we had the blessing of learning with other homeschoolers. The learners all in all were Tugi (7), Boogedy (4), Wonder Bolt (2), Matias (11), Esteban (8), Emma (4) and Tutti (6). What a wonderful mix of ages!!!
They learned about the life cycle and the anatomy of frogs.
Then the learners observed our bowl of tadpoles and pointed out the different characteristics of the tadpoles depending on their stages of growth, whether they’ve grown legs or arms or lost their tails or none.
The most awaited part of the day was the dissection.
Then they compared the frog’s internal structure with the structures of the human body using the Squishy Human Body Model.
But before the afternoon ended Boogedy decided he wanted to smash something. Ice smashing with a real hammer is fun and a great way to develop eye and hand coordination!!
