We've been meeting with our "Engage" school co-op again this year on Tuesdays, and it has been such a blessing to us. The other teachers put so much effort into each lesson; we've been thankful for all the in-depth and hands-on learning. This year's classes for the elementary kids were: Astronomy, U.S. History, Literature and Poetry (American authors), Art, and Picture Study.
The best part, in my opinion, was all the projects that the kids did! It's so much easier to do projects in groups instead of relying on me to do them at home. :)
Here are a few of the shots I captured throughout the year:
|Sending rockets into space|
(Even on Crazy Hair Day, above!)
Making dioramas of Lewis and Clark's expedition, I think, or maybe steamboats or something?:
Getting ready to do something messy:
Yarn art projects:
Making "galaxy" t-shirts:
And then there was Science Presentation Day:
|These 2 did a project on Constellations|
It is definitely an active and fun group! We are grateful for our time with them.
