We worked on science this week again, learning more about gravity
and doing another experiment. I am using this Thames & Kosmos kit.
We built the potato trap and had a lot of fun learning about the force of gravity!
We continued our art and music appreciation this week. We learned more about Mendelsohn
by completing our biography notebook pages and listening to his music.
We also looked at a few more paintings by Rembrandt.
Next week we will be studying a new composer and a new painter!
As part of the art and music appreciation, we are also doing a little
bit of art ourselves! We are using a fun Klutz book:
We are doing this all together. The kids are using loose watercolour paper
and I am using the book. We had a lot of fun with the first
assignment, it was simple and relaxing.
Andre started a new lapbook. I don't have photos yet, because it is only
in the information gathering stage.
One of his career choices is to become a movie director, the other is
a pilot for the Canadian Air Force. He told me this week that he wanted
to do a lapbook about famous movie directors.
He has already started gathering information on
M. Night Shyamalan and Steven Spielberg.
That wraps up our report for this week!
With fall here, we have been busy baking too...
baking is a great learning activity as well, and it's yummy!
