Monday opened up with our weekly science experiment:

Rain clouds!  ice water over boiling water.

It took a few minutes to get going, and obviously this blurry picture can’t capture the consistent drips that were happening.

For poetry, we all wrote Lantern Poems:
Here is one…

SNOW                         
                    WINTER
             FLUFFY FLAKES
      SPARKLY WHITE SHEET
                      COLD

Tuesday Science Co op
Andrew learned about rhythms in music, and made peanut butter cookies in cooking class.
Bryson had a biome study.  We review Flora (flowers/plants) and learned what Fauna (animals) was.
We then explored animal classification, specifically vertebrates;
mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and insects.

Other activities included…

Watching the State of the Union Address.  meh…

Having an in depth discussion about the family who had 7 kids removed from their home.

The younger boys had fun using tally marks to count things in our house;
windows, doors, chairs, stairs…

We ended the week with some lovely weather!
