So now I'm toying with the idea of getting a group together again to go back to the museum. It would be fun for our daughter S as a supplement to her science curriculum. We could cover some things that are in her curriculum overview for this year like ecosystems and living things and how they interact with one another. In addition to working in the garden, the staff at the museum also provided a room for us and a short lesson covering either plants we were working with, a topic we were covering in our own science curriculum, or different exhibits that were being featured at that time in the museum. I'm thinking we can use some of this teaching time in the classroom to do some lapbooking together. The more I think about it, the more excited I get about it.
Speaking of excited, there were some changes in my older son's homeschool class options this year and I wasn't sure what we were going to do for science and math. As you know from my previous posts, math is the one subject I don't teach, especially at the high school level. I've been weighing all our options and wasn't sure what we were going to do. So here's where the exciting part comes in. We just found out that Time4Learning has added an online high school curriculum. We've always been so happy with this program. This couldn't have come at a better time.
