We have had tons of rain this past week and today it was pouring as well.
For Nature study...
A hurricane is gaining strength in the Atlantic so I thought it was a good time to research and learn.
We watched a few weather reports and discussed meteorology as well locating hurricane on our globe~
Our book for the day was an oldie but goodie: Time of Wonder.
The community in the book endures a hurricane so we gathered supplies to make one.
Through several trials we figured out getting the water spinning
before adding color allowed us to see the spiral clearly~
We watched a National Georgraphic documentary while creating a hurricane with cotton balls~
In the midst of all our discussions and videos, we made a list of facts learned
then copied a few into our journals~
Next we were off to the kitchen for Cook-a-Book.
We used tortillas as our tornado then melted butter, added blue food coloring
and painted spirals adding cinnamon sugar
then rolled to cook in the microwave~
I let them cut into pieces to see more spirals and ate it up (actually 2 of them)~
And lastly we watched Nim's Island making it a super Fun Friday!!!
We are SO praying for everyone in the path of the storms out there this weekend
especially my sister and her family.
