Once again- what is the deal with Blogger turning my pictures around?? This is page number one in the notebook.
One can never have too many maps of China in a notebook. I just had him do one more yesterday to pick China out from a map of Asia. I'm happy to report he did it!
He did a colored pencil drawing of Ping in the water- can you see how those lines make the duck "move"? He also did some copywork from Draw Write Now. You can check out HSS for a chart on what DWN lessons match FIAR stories for each volume. The other page shows a reflection of the sun in the water. We talked about how light will bounce back from smooth surfaces like mirrors and water. When I mentioned reflection he immediately told me about Paul Revere's Ride which we did a year ago.
The data chart with pictures is from HSS. I made my own the first time a few years ago (and still have it carefully organized in my computer files- it's there in the middle) and aside from the pictures I prefer it because it has a column for a hypothesis. Every good scientist should have a prediction before they begin testing their theories.Homeschool Share has many more items for a Ping notebook. I have a few more to try out for types of ducks and Ping's family. We thoroughly enjoyed this story and I must mention also that we had some Chinese take out the first weekend in honor of Ping and well kitchen wall papering!
