For history we are combining 3 different things into more of a unit study type approach..
Then on to the fun stuff! We already have 2 fieldtrips (in one day!) under our belt for this year! The first stop was a four hour adventure thru the Oregon Gardens in Silverton during their homeschool days! We picked up a friend and I dropped off Dominic so that we could have a bit more relaxed time. The kids did seed germination experiments, tried edible plants, dissected owl pellets, studied animal tracks and more!
and Arianna of course was curious..pokey or soft...
then of course we saw this and it gives you a hint about our second fieldtrip...
Our local wildlife refuge did a night class on bats that was super interesting and then afterwards we sat out on the deck of their facilities and watched the bats fly around us! My older daughter thinks they are super cool while my younger daughter thinks they are a bit creepy..but they both like them!
It was a super long day. We were up and out the door before 8 and didn't get home and into bed until 10 at night! The kids did sleep in this morning somewhat though!
More fieldtrips in 2 days! Lots of fun stuff planned for the year!
