History – The Celts and the Romans; Science – Flowers
For History we listened to Story of the World and read from the Usborne World Encyclopedia (as per Pandia Press Ancient History Odyssey I)
We also got a FREE Green Hill Music - Celtic Sampler 2013 from Amazon.com
As we ventured into the Romans we watched
Horrible Histories – Rotten Romans (on netflix); this is a new discovery for us, so we also watched some of the episodes for time periods we have already covered.
Brain Pop Jr – Ancient Rome (subscriptrion required); because it was 4th of July week, we also watched Statue of Liberty on Brain Pop Jr, and the FREE movies on Brain Pop throughout the week. They have a different FREE video each day, and typically the correspond to holidays, current events, etc.)
and Drive Thru History – Season 1, Episode 1 Ancient Rome: Historical Overview. There are a few more episodes we will watch this upcoming two weeks as we continue with Rome.

For Science we talked about flowers. We took the nature hike (featured in last weeks Field Trip Friday Post). We talked about the different parts of a flower, and dissected a Hibiscus Flower. The printable sheet was from Pandia Press R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey Life Science.
We also planted some carrot seeds in a plant viewer that I bought at OrientalTrading.com
For Writing this week, he had to write Flower words. We used a write around the room printable from 3dinosaurs.com flower pack
Science has become part of our circle time in the morning (something new we are trying out for an upcoming review, stay tuned!) so everyone participates!
Other activity we did this week was Lego Club (at currclick.com). He built a log cabin, and then added some of his own personal touches to it
Next week: Seeds & More Rome
