Last week I took the kids to the Neville Museum as they had a new exhibit called Extreme Deep. The Extreme Deep is an amazing hands on exhibit exploring life at the bottom of the sea. It was presented by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHO). It depicts the mysteries of the ocean floor at greatest depths, newly discovered life forms, thermal vents, close up views of deep sea research submersibles as well as shipwrecks like the titanic. Visitors observe first hand technology that has only recently allowed men and woman to travel the ocean floor.
Our Homeschool weeks are going pretty good. Although we had a couple bumps in the road on Week 3 and 4. The kids to seem to really enjoy what we have been doing. Of course Dakota still has his grumbly moments. Brittany of course she loves to learn so there really are no grumbly moments.
Do you have a child that wants to learn a foreign language? Middlebury Interactive Languages teaches kids in grades K – 12 Chinese, German, Spanish, and French. My daughter has been asking for a year now to learn Chinese. I knew it would be challenging but I never realized just how much fun it would be. For this review we did the K – 2 Chinese Courses. In this specific course the child is learning Mandarin Chinese.
I love game nights with my family. They bring some of the best memories, smiles and laughter. We had the chance to review two really fun and amazing games: Wonky: The Crazy Cubes Card Game and Tapple: Fast Word Fun For Everyone. Both of these games are made by USAopoly. USAopoly sure does know how to bring the fun into gaming!
Unit studies can come in handy when you want to study something specific. It’s nice to be able to incorporate different subjects while your study one topic. For this review we received a physcial copy of the book HEROES OF HISTORY – Davy Crockett: Ever Westward, and a Unit Study Curriculum Guide by YWAM Publishing.
Heroes of History are very interesting biographies that bring history to life. The stories are true stories about men and woman who changed the course of history. The stories are in a narrative format that discuss history, geography, government, and science topics. Davy Crockett is suggested for ages 10 and older.
