Well, it took Mercedes exactly 6 weeks to complete an entire kindergarten science book. This is her second kindergarten science curriculum she has completed and she just turned five 2 months ago. I am in trouble with these girls. I can hardly keep up with how quickly they devour knowledge! In addition to reading the textbook, discussing the question and and answer section at the end of each unit and doing the little activities in the book (coloring, connect the dots, color by number, etc.) we also did a couple of extra activities to go along with the 7 days of creation units.
We went on a leaf hunt and did some crayon rubbings.
We also tried flowers instead of leaves and those turned out really cool!
We made leaf and flower collages with clear contact paper.
And we checked out a couple books from the library about constellations and studies them.
After a year of My Father's World Kindergarten science and finishing Christian Liberty Press Kindergarten science so quickly, Mercedes will be starting 1st grade science in January! Curriculum yet to be decided.
