Evangel Temple P.E September - December 2014

One of our local universities offers college student taught P.E classes for homeschoolers. The cost is $15 per semester. I love it! Most of the students do well with the kids and I know the experience is invaluable to them. They do many team building activities each class period. 2 classes a week. 

They were telling the person in front how to get through the ball field.

Fall Scavenger Hunt ( 9/11/2014 )

One of our local parks has added a few new features so I decided to set up a fall scavenger hunt play date. It was a cool day but we really enjoyed looking. I got the scavenger hunt from TpT site. We found everything on our list and the kiddos played :)

State Notebooking (2014-2015)

I found this great school lesson from TpT site, I LOVE this site and use it frequently!

The pages are simple enough and only require writing on a few lines so this would be great for younger kiddos that aren't quiet there yet with writing. I help with the writing part of it. Cody can copy off the map I have that shows just the sate and capitol. 

Here is what the black pages look like. At the top the kid can cut out the state name, map, flag, write in state nickname, capital, motto, flower, bird, fun fact, seal, quarter, license plate, and the surrounding states. I have been using to get the information needed for the pages. Just go there and search the state and it will bring up the vital information on the state. 

This is our map that we are using to help with the notebooking. It only shows states with the capitals so it is perfect for it. 

We start out be review previous states and capitals by locating them on the map and then we move on to the new state. Takes about 30 mins or so to complete.

Dry Ice Bubbles ( 8/2/2014 )

Here is what we used:

1 block of dry ice
1 5 gallon bucket with lid
20 feet of clear tubing cut in 7 ft lengths
3 funnels
Bubble solution

My husband drilled 3 holes in the lid to match the size of the tubing and cut the tubing for me :) Then we pulled the tubing through and added funnels at the end. We filled the bucket 1/4 full of water and added the dry ice. Place the lid on the bucket but do not snap it down. We then placed the funnels in the bubble solution and we got bubbles! 

When the dry ice was almost done we filled the bucket up 1/2 way and poured our bubble solution in the bucket and watched it bubble :)
