We have survived Thanksgiving!!! I know that we are all thankful for a break. Time away from school, and to be with family.
We have been researching space. It has been so much fun! This is my most limited subject and I have learned more in researching with the kids these last couple of weeks. They keep finding fun facts to share that they are learning! I love that! The kids are very eager and are managing taking control of their learning fairly well. There are some bumps along the way and the kids are learning that they will survive but they must put in the time and work.
This week we are finishing up our research on accommodations for space. They have learned about space food, slingshot effect, how microgravity affects the body and the most fun part of all waste management! It has been a blast having the kids research how astronauts use the restroom in space.
They have the "option" of making a model that represents some of the things they have been learning. These presentations will be done tomorrow Tues 12/4 during their science class. These will be no longer than 5 minutes long. Parents are welcome to come and observe just make sure and check in at the MS office.
I hear one group even found some space ice cream to bring in. I'm a little scared of that-but excited at the same time.... come see us!!! :)
