I'm still working out the kinks, but i plan to have one day a week of exclusive science content. The first unit we're doing is astronomy, which has been eagerly anticipated and wildly popular.
Before starting, I gathered my supplies, gathered my peeps, and quickly formulated a plan for how the day would go.
So first, we read from our Layers of learning unit book which gave a good concise overview. Then we read from the magic schoolbus book
So then we had book basket time, The 15yo continued working on his in more detail, and finally they are watching the tv show of the magic school bus to help it sink in better, since it was soooo much info. Its working out to be a pretty sucessful day. Now for math :(
