Learn At Home with Legos Series day 1 #homeschool #education

Thomas Edison I have started using some of our favorite little toys to create learning tools for my homeschoolers. I thought I might share a few days worth of posts on all the wonderful things out there in the blogosphere you can find to homeschool with Legos. Boy there are a ton of resources out there, free resources, all you need is the Legos (some libraries actually loan them), a printer and your usual craft/art supplies to create lapbooks or notebooks if you please. Our first stop was to learn about the toy itself, where did it come from, how was it made, when was it made etc. Photos du journal. Photos du journal. Viking History Co-op. Week 5: Viking Ships.

Viking History Co-op. Week 5: Viking Ships

The Vikings were explorers and traveled great distances in their ships. Shields and men lined the sides of the ships. Men sat on crates which doubled as storage containers and ate salted fish while on expeditions. The ships rode shallow in the water which allowed them to travel far inland on river. The shallow depth coupled with a team of men working together gave the Viking ships great speed. Easily identified by the great dragons carved into ships, Viking ships were master works of art. Viking Ship Building Video is a short video which explains how Viking ships were constructed.

Since the Vikings had to work together to row their ships, the kids each grabbed part of a rope and worked to row together. Teaching-creatively-giveaway-1000-in. Next week is the Teaching Creatively Blog Hop hosted by the Schoolhouse Review Crew.

Which holds the most? 50 A question for you - which of the five containers in the picture do you think holds the most water?

Which holds the most?

I instinctively guessed the big green shower gel, but the answer - you might be surprised to discover - is our trusty little orange tea pot! Although very different shapes and sizes, the four bottles each hold 250ml whilst the teapot holds 270ml. Mums make lists ...: Which holds the most? Exploring Water’s 3 States of Matter. Winter provides many natural learning opportunities for children.

Exploring Water’s 3 States of Matter

We’ve spent much time bird watching and hiking, and discussing the needs, adaptations and homes of animals in the winter. When Owen asked one day where icicles came from, I thought we’d attempt to dive deeper into science, and explore water’s 3 states of matter. Explain It: Objects that take up space and have mass (weight) are called matter. Matter is all around us. Can you find matter in our home? Show It: Yes, your train table takes up space and is very heavy. Exploring Water’s 3 States of Matter. Winter provides many natural learning opportunities for children.

A Fizzing Good Tea Party: Color & Chemistry Experiments Disguised as Play. Last week, the kids and I had so much fun making volcanoes in the kitchen, that yesterday when 4 year old Luke decided he was going to work on a 196-piece Lego kit rated for ages 7-12, I knew 3 year old Lilah would want need something fun to do, and it would have to really occupy her to keep her from bugging Luke while he concentrated on building.

A Fizzing Good Tea Party: Color & Chemistry Experiments Disguised as Play

So, I told her we would have the most fun she’s ever had before…and I came up with this: A Fizzing Good Tea Party! In reality, it’s a little bit tea party, a little bit chemistry experiment, a little bit color mixing, a little bit potions-making 101, a lot of fine motor practice, and a huge dose of fun! While I think both boys and girls would LOVE this activity, I do think it would be especially good for getting girls interested in SCIENCE! Before we began, we gathered lots of different containers and put them on a tray, along with a variety of spoons and a few syringes.

When we had bunches of pretty colored liquids in front of us, Spring has Sprung! Activities for 10 Books. Super Tot is 3 years old.

Spring has Sprung! Activities for 10 Books

What's on the Tray? Building Butterflies with The Crunching Munching Caterpillar In this book, Caterpillar meets a bird, dragonfly, bee & butterfly. He wishes he could fly like them. Of course, at the end, his wish comes true. Exploring Static Electricity. With it being winter, the air is so dry and perfect for static electricity.

Exploring Static Electricity

While it is usually really annoying, shocking you after walking across carpet and making your hair fly everywhere, it is also a lot of fun to play with. We did a couple of little experiments to demonstrate electricity to the girls. Of course in the process of doing these, we did the typical static electricity experiment of rubbing balloons on your head and seeing what happens to your hair in the process! The first was using a balloon to bend water. Now a balloon on its own cannot bend water, but it can with the addition of static electricity. The water moves toward the balloon!

This is just what we do and what works for us. Hopefully you can use parts of it, or at least gain some inspiration from it. If you want to home preschool, you can! Classical-composers-monthly-review-and. I am so excited to share a fabulous resource with you today, Classical Composers Monthly. This is a site that was created by a homeschool mom who wanted a place to find great classical music resources to use in her teaching. Classical music is something I have always loved , but struggled with teaching my kids. So, I was thrilled when I found this great website! It is hard work to compile things to teach my children. My Body Map. I totally stole this idea from Pink and Green Mama; it just seemed like such a good way to introduce parts of the body!

I have actually been waiting for a chance to do it! This week seemed great since we are going to be talking about doctors for the letter D. I was actually a bit nervous about starting it though. I was afraid it would take too long, or my little monster would be into it. I got lucky, and after we had everything prepped (which I did while the girls were playing), it only took a couple hours. Then I measured their arms and legs to know about how big to make the bones.
