Weekly Wrap-up (First Grade & Preschool) Seeds & Ancient Rome- Week 32
Preschool activities this week – Boxes in action. The large picture is circle time science, my first grader is labeling parts of a seed (we discount monocot and dicot seeds, and observed how seeds change after being soaked in water, from Pandia Press R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey, Life Science) The littles are coloring a flower picture. Also pictured in action is Handwriting without Tears and Touch Math. The seed sensory box was a HUGE hit this week! To see the original boxes laid out go to my weekly workbox post HERE.
We made seed mosaic flowers, and did several experiments with seeds. Bottom left is some birdseed, an avocado seed and some mustard seeds. The other 3 plant pictures are radish seeds in different environments with different variables (some have paper towel, some have water, some have sun, etc…so see which grows best). I got the flower page from HERE and enlarged slightly with my printer. Many of the seed projects we did were taken from Science Activities in a Bag, I did a swap and a review of the ebook a while back. You can read it HERE.
He finished The Story of Rome from last week. He read
and started reading
we also are reading the nonfiction companion as a read aloud
Episode 11, Season 1 of Magic School Bus (Goes to Seed)
Season 3, Episode 8 of Curious George (2nd half, Seed Trouble)
Brain Pop Jr Plants – Plant Life Cycle (subscription required)
For Rome we watched Drive Thru History Season 1, episodes 2&3 and listened to Story of the World Vol 1 and read from the Usborne World History Encyclopedia (as per Pandia Press, History Odyssey- Ancients I).
This current week will be a really light load….I’m headed to girls camp at the end of the week, and we have two field trips days.
