Cell Division

We have been studying cell division and mitosis in Science. It surprised me how interested Carter was in all of it. He actually got down on the floor by the book and was trying to explain it back to me. Yesterday, I took out all of our yarn to make models of each step of cell division. They all enjoyed it, but Carter LOVED it. After taking pictures of all of the models, Madison suggested putting them into a stop motion video, so we could watch the process in motion. It turned out great! One of the things that I love the most about homeschooling is being able to do so much hands on learning. The kids understood the cell division process so much more after our activity...and they enjoyed learning it!

That's a great idea to learn a lesson... I will have to try and remember this, for when Jared learns about it. :D
