Nature Walk and Leaves

Last week we enjoyed a walk around the neighborhood collecting fallen leaves.  We tried to find as many different ones as we could.  Today, we used the book, Crinkleroot's Guide to Knowing the Trees to identify which leaves we had found.  We made a poster board and labeled them.  I'll try to take a picture of the final project once the glue is dry.  =)

Learned About: Identification, Observation, Trees, Fall,

What Makes a Magnet?

A few weeks ago we studied magnets. We used the book, What Makes a Magnet? C really enjoyed the little magnet experiment in the book and had fun "fishing" with her own magnet.
Ignore the messy homeschooling room... it wasn't near finished then.  We've made progress.  =)  Can't wait to have it done.
