Prehistory - Devonian and Carboniferous Periods, Naked Egg and fun extinction game.

by dottieanna29 on 08-03-2011 at 02:06 PM
I thought I had posted our newest Prehistory study already but it's not on my list of blog posts so here in is again.

The Devonian and Carboniferous periods are when animals began to move from living in the water to living on land. One of the adaptations that was necessary for this switch was the development of a shelled egg. Prior to this most animals were amphibious and had to return to the water to lay their eggs. To help the kids understand the difference, we did the naked

Prehistory - Ordovician and Silurian Periods.

by dottieanna29 on 05-27-2011 at 06:58 PM
This week we learned about the Ordovician and Silurian Periods in Prehistory. I combined these two periods because they were covered together in our Usborne Internet Linked Encyclopedia of World History and our Usborne First Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life. That and making cooksonia was the only craft/activity I could come up with (and I actually didn't even come up with that one - Angela at Satori Smiles did). The creatures are starting to get more complicated and I am not

Prehistory - Cambrian Period

We moved on to the Cambrian Period in our Prehistory study. This was the era where there was an explosion of new creatures appearing in the seas, many with hard exoskeletons to protect their bodies and jointed legs – the early ancestors of arthropods.

Thanks for reading. :-)

Prehistory - Vendian Period and Making Kimberella

This week we were finally ready to introduce our Charlie’s Playhouse timeline playmat and Creature Cards. While we will be concentrating on one Period at a time, the kids were very interested in this new toy with all the bizarre creatures and had to explore it more fully before we could narrow our focus. We spent quite a bit of time just looking at the timeline, reading the various description and trying to pronounce the creature names.

28 kdgn reg 9 - 12

by dottieanna29 on 01-25-2011 at 11:36 AM
Just about every day I drive by our local public school. For the past month, the notices board out front has read "28 KDGN REG 9-12". If my son was going to public school, I would be there on the 28th, paperwork in hand, registering him for school. Since we have no plans for that, it is just a reminder that pretty soon we will be homeschooling "for real".

We have been homeschooling for almost 2 years now. The first year was very relaxed, feeling our way, finding
