Scavenger Hunt

As our study of The Salamander Room comes to a close, the kids embarked on a scavenger hunt. This is an activity in the FIAR manual of course and we used the page from the Fold n Learn that goes with the story.

I thought this unit would be a fabulous way to end our school year, but the weather has not cooperated. We had snow at Mother's Day with lots of rainy, cloudy COLD days and days with hot, hot, hot sun and high temperatures. So, we did not get out as much as I would have liked. During great weather day's R9 was doing a lot of play rehearsals.

However, we are calling it good and moving on. We will visit classification and the animal kingdom again for sure and we'll add the next layer.

I have a few more posts to do on this unit and then I'll start posting on our summer plans. Our 2009-2010 school year is over as of Friday. E11 and R9 have IOWA testing Tuesday and Wednesday this week and then we are taking a several week break of it all.

Our favorite part of The Salamander Room was the scavenger hunt.

We loved The Salamander Room when we did it a few years ago with our older girls. I am looking forward to rowing it again with my (4 yr old) son in another year or two. The scavenger hunt is definitely one of our favorite memories from it. Love FIAR. Looking forward to getting back to it now that our TOS voyage is over.
