~~Flower Dissection~~

My Mother's Day flowers are going under the knife...
First...We watched this excellent flower dissection video:

Part 2 is here:
 Aly carefully took apart the first flower...
 Following the instructions in the video...
 ...She taped the flower parts to a piece of paper...
 Added labels...

 We watched the first video again for a refresher...



Next...We will look at the plant parts under our microscope...

Yay, Homeschool!

Abi Teaches Her American Girl, Kit, Algebra

This was the scene when I walked into our basement schoolroom yesterday.
Abi set up some algebra problems for her doll, Kit.







They say the best way to learn something well is to teach it to someone else -- or in Abi's case -- something.  Whatever works!
Yay, homeschool!
