Two Down...One To Go

We finally got around to dissecting our grasshopper this week. We've been focusing so hard on finishing Math and English that I've had a hard time fitting in Science. First they did a journal page on what they remembered about the worm, then we did the grasshopper. I was surprised that the boys had a harder time with it than Madison did. Carter helped me a little with the cutting, but after I had it opened he or Patrick wanted nothing more to do with it. Madison actually studied it more than she did the worm. We had a harder time finding things with the grasshopper. If it was because of our poor dissecting skills, I hope that we have better luck with the frog.
I had planned on this being our last week, but we needed a few more days to finish up a few projects. Wednesday will be our last day!!!

Sherri, where are you getting the dissecting kits from? Could you please e-mail me and let me know. Hannah has to do a worm this year and she has 3 more weeks of lessons left. We would have been finished for the year next week, but with her being so sick she missed 3 weeks of school. If I can't get it ordered in time, we will just complete it over the summer. I think that Madison is very brave for not being squeamish. I know that Hannah will not have that attitude. LOL!

Chelita is right, Rhonda. I did get the kit from Home Science Tools.
Thanks for the notes friends :).

Very cool! That's interesting that your daughter was more interested in it than your sons!
