So what are our plans. Sort of the same thing as in history. The book has 14 lessons and we will do each lesson in 2 weeks. That gives us a total of 28 weeks to finish this book. What will we have at the end of this book? We will have a notebook of drawings and illustrations. My favorite is the ocean box that takes all 28 weeks to do. You do a little at a time and end up with a box of all the animals you learned about in the box made out of clay or paper. I think we will do ours out of clay. Of course, there are the experiments that they love to do. I really can't wait to get started with that because I can just see our field trips....the beach, the aquarium and more of the beach. Oh, what fun!
So here you have my lesson plans for the first 4 weeks in science. I have it all done it takes too much room to put it here. If you want to see more or know more just ask.
Each lesson will be 2 weeks long and it will be 3 days a week.
