Scientifically Speaking

I am combining our Nature Study and Science Experiments into this post, and I’ll throw Math in, too. Math=Abeka. There, that’s done :)

Stuntman asked to study stars this term, so our focus will be astronomy. He originally said flowers, but I asked him to let’s wait and do that one in the spring, because I think it will be more fun then. Since it will be getting dark earlier, I’m hoping we can do some observation. We’ll check some books out from the library, and I’ll read the astronomy section out of the Comstock book so I can present the material to them. I may or may not read sections of it to them, we’ll see how it goes. We’ll do this on Tuesdays.

On Thursdays, we’ll do an experiment from the Telling Time by the Stars or Explorations in Outer Space sections of the experiment book. I’m thinking we’ll do some on the moon and planets as well. I’m making a note to look in the library for books, and also find some other experiment materials–you can read that as one of those planetary model kits.

I’ll also be making it a point to go outside and observe the skies.

Diva will also be reading It Couldn’t Just Happen.
