Pics from the Week:
|We go to the zoo often, and each time we go there seems to be something exciting that we don't usually get to see. This time it was watching the sea otter eat. Look at those teeth! He uses them to crack his shellfish.|
|The Oregon Zoo has themed curriculum on their website. We used the one called ZooScope this time. It explains the scientific method. Then you put what you've learned to use & graph what you observed. During this trip we were able to observe the African birds & Amur Leopards. Capt. N loves making graphs.|
MATH / SCIENCE
|As part of his math, Capt. N has to measure & graph the growth of bean seeds. One pot is in the light, one is in the dark. We actually used pea seeds since that's what we had at home. The ones in the light are doing well.|
|The ones in the dark are lacking color and do not have many leaves. They are using all their energy trying to find the light.|
