What we Learned today - April 12, 2011

me - "Hey Son, what do you think we should have for breakfast this morning?"

the lad - "IRISH PANCAKES!" "you got to remember mommy, I like Irish pancakes". (this said with a very earnest face)

So this is what we made (i cut the recipe in half)
Here is an easy way to make thin pancakes:

4 oz/ 125g/ 1 cup plain flour
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1/2 pt/ 250ml/ 1 cup milk
1 tbsp melted butter

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds. The batter should then be allowed to stand for 30 minutes in a cool place. Heat a small pan over a medium heat. Grease with a little butter and wipe out with kitchen paper. Fry about 2 tbsp of batter at a time, swirling to cover the base of the pan. Keep them thin and there will be no need to turn. Serve rolled up with sugar. (we roll with cinnamon sugar)
Today we have a simple plan. Have breakfast, break open a dinosaur egg (purchased from dollar store) and talk about dinosaurs, paleontology, archaeology while doing so. Start our review of Mother's Day for DNG, clean the kitchen, play outside, and see what else we can fit in. :)

But for now...BREAKFAST! :)

we enjoyed our breakfast and then dug up two dinosaurs.
The lad had dug up this one yesterday at gramma's: stegosaurus
and today he dug up: Dilophasaurus


and I dug up a Parasaurolophus


Then we had fun letting our imaginary bunnies dig them up as well. One was the digger (archaeologist) and the other was the puzzler (Paleontologist) who put the dinosaurs together.

looked at doing this.

We never did do the mother's day unit study, but we did do other things... like we read books and did some experiments on bridges. I'll be posting pictures (go here for those)!
