This month we will leave Asia and travel to the continent of Africa.

Our study of insects will begin. Ladybug and butterfly work is on the science shelf. We will observe the magic of metamorphosis in our butterfly house.

What is a primary color? Rainbows and color mixing will help us find out.

We will assemble our brand new garden beds, fill them with soil and begin the planting process. Does that little seed really have a plant in it?

It’s May!

This month we will leave Africa and head home to the continent of North America. We will eventually focus on Washington State in June. The shark work remains on the shelves and we have added Coral Reef work. Dolphin and whales will follow shortly. Also new to the science shelves rainbows and color mixing. Seeds will also be studied this month.

In about a week we will plant seeds and send them home. Once the seeds are planted and on the way to you we will introduce our sewing projects. Our focus this week is Mother’s Day gift making. In a couple of weeks insect work will be added to the shelves. Our focus will be ladybugs and butterflies. Weather dependent the caterpillars will arrive at the end of the month. Once a chrysalis has formed they will then be carefully moved to the butterfly house. Metamorphosis is such a wonder to witness.

This is a unit the children really look forward to with anticipation. Much like the arrival of Mr. Bones.
