We started science!!

Today was our first day of science using Exploring Creation Zoology 1: The Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day. Overall, I think it went very well. Maintaining their attention for the reading took a bit of effort, but then again how interesting is it to talk about what zoology means and classifying animals. The girls declared the booklet I created fun. Jessie only need a few hints to fill in the information (mostly of the names of the different classification groups). Violet needed a bit more help both remembering the information and writing it down, but she didn't complain while we worked (which is always a good sign). Benny.... Well Benny watched the men cutting tree branches around the power line in our front yard most of the time and interrupted several times to inform the girls what they were doing. On the other hand, what else can you expect from a 3yo boy. It's not every day there's so much to watch out the window. I'm sure Thursday will go a bit more smoothly without all of the commotion in the front yard.
