Homeschooling Fun!

We had a great school day yesterday! We read parables and the pictures the elementary and middle schoolers drew are on the fridge.

I made crafts for Thanksgiving with the preschoolers. And the elementary and middle schoolers made some complicated and rewarding mini books for zoology.

Sometimes it is grueling just getting the basics done. Getting markers, glue and scissors involved in our homeschool day was awesome!

Apologia Zoology 2 is our science curriculum. I bought the entire kit. I'm usually frugal but having it all on hand was well worth the price.

I printed cute turkeys off Crayola.com's site. You can find them under free coloring pages>new coloring pages. I wish you success today in your homeschool.

IMAX Deep Sea

We love documentaries and are studying Zoology 2 by Apologia press. The dvd recommendation for the end of chapter one is IMAX: Deep Sea.

We rented this dvd last night from Amazon and it was a good overview of ocean life. It was 40 minutes long, narrated by Johny Depp and Kate Winslet, and wasn't heavy on propaganda of any sort. It was just a visually stunning overview of aquatic creatures. It is suitable for all ages and we highly recommend it.
