Here's a sample of a (very rare) stay at home day.
We started out the day learning about science. We're talking about brains right now. We already read a few books about them. Now we're digging a little deeper by learning about Phineas Gage, making model brains, and watching brain surgery! We didn't go as far as to do a dissection, which was on the schedule originally. I just can't do it. Watching a video of a little girl cutting a brain with a butter knife on youtube almost did us in. Barrrrf. Here's the link for those awesome brain helmets ;)
After lunch we did a history lesson, where we learned about Nicola Tesla, read about the West, and baked cowboy cookies.
At this point, we all needed a big break, so we walked to the Children's Museum for a little art and energy-burning session, only to find out our membership expired. Sad! At least it was a gorgeous day for a walk. So nice! I didn't even need a coat :)
Before we called it a day, we read Woody, Hazel and Little Pip by Elsa Beskow and did a felt craft that I've been meaning to do for about a month and a half. This was our final Autumn activity that I really wanted to do before moving onto the next season. Now we're ready to move on to Thanksgiving "stuff"! Gobble gobble.
What next? A nap for me! I'm exhausted after a long but very fulfilling day!
