We have been very busy doing our colors unit. we started late so we didnt do egg dying.. I finally went to the library and got close to all the books on the list! So far I have only bought the Rainbow Goblins book and it just arrived today. I was going to save it until I had stuff ready to make goblins, and had borrowed the nesting rainbow from my friend who ownes one, but ds wanted to read the new book that came in the mail. We had a ball mixing colored ice cubes yesterday; we called it an experiment and I had him record his scientific data with his beeswax crayons. Then with some leftover ice cubes I let the kids paint with them on white paper.
Today we made our watercolor paints. We have been baking alot too.
I am getting stuff together to shift into the insect unit soon, since we just studied bees with our homeschool coop. I know it says its for spring, but we can still do the ant project and some of the others..
The book lists have been great; we've really enjoyed them so far.
I love this curriculum! I take what works for us, and add it to what we already do, and leave what doesnt work for us. It is so nice to have a starting point; a direction; already laid out for me!
