Woot! Woot! We are done-officially anyway with school for 2018/2019! Last week was slow and fun. ( I know that I am writing this at the end of the next week, but our last official week of school was last week.). Parks and Sawyer broke out the paints. We looked through photos depicting moments in US History. Sims and Sawyer went to their final science lab classes. Sims finished his geometry class. We did one last hike with our 4H group.
Now on to summer! And what would summer be in a homeschooling household without some good old fashioned educational activities (insert child moans)? We started our summer off hatching chickens. We are city folk here so this was a totally new experience. We learned about eggs and the embryonic development of the chickens. We learned how to “see” them develop through the eggs by holding a light up to the eggs. We watched them hatch and grow quickly! I also got a subscription to MEL chemistry kits for the summer. The first one already came in. I got it for all of the kids, but Parks jumped on it. He LOVED it. Other than that, we will continue with some reading throughout the summer! I will write a post wrapping up the year with everyone’s classes and such at a later time. Until then-Happy Summer!
