I mentioned in an earlier post that we were notebooking our way through Big Brother's 2nd grade Science. I am nowhere near as fancy and creative with this as some others, but I thought I would share something we enjoyed!
Big Brother had fun doing the work for this page! We read and talked about the life cycle of a frog from several different sources. Then he used PlayDoh to create an example of each stage of a frog's life from egg to adult frog. We took pictures of his creations and used them to make this simple page in his notebook.
Here were his frog eggs:
Tadpoles grow back legs:
Front legs grow:
Now a froglet with a tail:
Finally we remove the tail and have a grown up frog:
So much better than just reading dry text and answering questions, don't you think?
What do you do to make learning fun and interesting in your homeschool? I would LOVE to hear your ideas!!
