These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7

ECC week 2
Just a sample of things we did this past week. Learning about scale on a map, #1 traced her hand and then made a smaller scale drawing of her hand.
The Worms. After having to put this off a couple of days because I couldn't find any worms in our yard. I picked some up at the gas station/bait shop. We were to observe the worms in their habitat to see what their niche was. We layered dirt/sand/dirt/oatmeal. From our science Properties of Ecosystems
day 2, you can see some movement and the worms definitely made their way down.
day 3 maybe a bit more movement. We were suppose to see how the soil and sand get all mixed up showing how the worms niche is to make fertile soil. I didn't get a picture of day 4 of the experiment as we had to take it on vacation with us. I dumped them out on day five and they were still alive!
This is #2 version of children around the world from Global Art
and here is #1's she spent so much time on the first 2 making clothes and hair that she just made a brown boy for the last one lol.
and last but not least continuing in our artistic pursuits art program #1 had to do a still life painting with watercolor crayons. I didn't have a pretty bowl of fruit or anything like that handy so I grabbed #1's earlier workbox contents and said "here paint this"
