In our Creaturepedia and Plantpedia notbeook, Selena wrote out her first research page. The episode was “The Mysterious Itch” and Milo is itching like crazy, while Alfred and Camille search for the cause.
It turns out that Milo had made jam from rose hips, and the little hairs on the rose hips cause itching and are also used to make itching powder.
We looked up rose hips and roses on wikipedia and got to see some interesting pictures of them. We also learned that rose hips are a great source of vitamins.
After finishing our research, Selena wrote out her information page, and I made rose bush pancakes and we had rose hip and lemongrass tea.
I made them a notebook and we are calling it our “Creaturepedia and Plantpedia” to have written descriptions of all the different things we learn about.
We are starting with sections for Amphibians, Arthropods, Birds, Fish, Mammals, Mollusks, Plants, and Reptiles.
The worksheets I made up have a place for a sketch, fill ins for habitat, region of the world, and powers (or features) and a large writing block beginning with the starters, If I were a….. and All about….
This is just one way that I am able to include school work with what they consider to be a fun extra. Honestly, I always considered watching these shows as part of our schooling anyways, and now I’m just adding in a writing piece.
We had a wonderful and exciting day. We got everything we could have wanted, most of all we had a great day with our family. (There was even snow!!!)
