We started Lesson 1 today, and the kids loved it. We went through ‘aquatic animals’ and ‘aqua mobility.’ Then they watched a Blue Planet video from the library – Ocean Blue. They’re happy. 😉
My plan is to read just some of the sections to my 1st grader and let my 6th grader do the rest on his own, in preparation to more independent work next year with General Science. I’m hoping to spend one week going through the lesson and two or three days doing the activities and experiments. 1st grader will draw pictures and retell what she heard in the reading. 6th grader will write a short summary each day.
