Then we looked a whole ton of pictures and selected a few to find out where they come from giving us a chance to use our mapping skills.
We watched some you tube videos.
this is one with a bunch of pictures of mygalomorphs.
and then we headed off to do some reading. :) Always good to read.
"Mommy! Can we learn about a snake today?" was the plea.
"Sure" I replied.. so we learned about the ring-necked snake.
We started off our story reading from 50 magical stories. The story today was called The half-chick. It was a funny story and "explains" why chickens are used as weather vanes. It just made us laugh.
From there we moved on to Classical animal stories" The Death of Gellert was a very sad story that immediately had my son thinking up a different ending to it.
From our world history book we have started to learn about the different types of weapons people have used throughout history. Today we learned about how weapons can be made from stone.. especially from Flint which is a hard stone that is easily chipped away at to make a pointed stone.
