This is what my living room looked like last night after the boys went to bed. I'm done planning for our pond unit and I have about 2 weeks worth of material to use so I'm sooo excited. There is a lot of help out there if you are planning to do a unit study. I first went through all my old teacher files, then surfed Pinterest, then scrolled through some of my favorite homeschooler blogs. After all this, I had plenty of things to choose from.
My emphasis with Terrance will be learning how to read and comprehend non-fiction texts, learning new vocabulary, drawing diagrams, and understanding how different habitats support the creatures that live there.
The boys will be focusing on the features of the habitat, new vocabulary, needs of the animals and how they are met by their habitat.
Some things the boys got to do this morning: their new grass sensory tub
with frogs, turtle, snake, bugs, tweezers, magnifying glass, shovel
duck observations and journaling, and a
new poem for their poetry notebooks about the frog that lives in the pond.
I'm so excited to be doing another unit study. It's been a while since we did a habitat study and all three boys seem to be enjoying it so far.
