here.) We are studying our five senses, as well the expedition of Lewis and Clark. It will be a seven-week unit in which we will spend one week on each sense individually, as well as an overall look at the five senses in general for one week at the beginning, and one week at the end of the unit. We have just finished week two, studying the eye and sight in-depth. The kids are really loving this unit, and I'm glad the Lord gave me this path to take. (If you would like to have more details about this unit-study, feel free to check out my 7-year old's blog here. She "tries" to update daily.) We have found some great exercises and videos online, and are looking forward to learning about our sense of taste this week.
When we begin our study of the ear and hearing, we plan to visit one of the free performances at the Singletary Center, which will have a full calendar once the college students are back full-time. We're also hoping to visit the Hummel Planetarium in Richmond, KY for one of our weeks, but I'm going to have to make sure we don't have any belief conflicts before I plan that trip any further. From there, I don't know where this unit will take us, but I'm very encouraged by the excitement I see in my children, as well as their desire to learn more.
Do you have any suggestions for our upcoming weeks? I'd love to hear from you, so please leave a comment below!
