Hands-on Learning on the Types of Fossils

Friday, June 24, 2016

One activity that Mavi and I did during our fossil study was to examine the different types of preservation of organisms. We discovered that there are actually 5 major types of fossils and I’m sharing how Mavi worked to demonstrate it.

Investigating the Past Life with Safari Toob Fossils

Friday, June 17, 2016

We love our Safari Toob!  I think every ‘Mom’schooler should have at least a set or two of these toobs.  They are fabulous learning materials and my kids love them! 

Anyway, Mavi is officially joining Vito’s weekly themed activities as he’s almost done with school. He misses “Mom” school and urged me to let him join with the activities.  So while Vito is all about play and learn, I’m giving Mavi some serious investigative work like research, more readings and selective hands-on activities.

Exploring Colors with DIY Light Table and Stencils

Thursday, June 16, 2016

Vito is 31 months old.

We’re having simple activities for our Light and Shadow Unit.  Since it’s been raining most of the time, we’re doing much of the activities indoors (much to my dismay).  So probably, creating shadows under the sun has to wait, and shadows using torch will also have to wait since our sunset here is 10PM.  We might redo this activity in September or October, when night time comes early so we can play with our torch and make shadows.
