Lentil: Part 1

J5 has been doing the FIAR unit on Lentil the past week or so. He is really enjoying his school. He's been happily play a harmonica around the house and try out lemon recipes. He learned where Ohio is and we have plans to color some maps.

We talked about the author Robert McCloskey and his other books which are our favorites like Make Way for Ducklings, Blueberries for Sal, and One Morning in Maine.

J5 made a list with me of the buildings in our village. Like Lentil, we live in a small town.

We have more to share about our lemon recipes, but this week we are excited to do some acid/base chemistry using red cabbage juice! Not really a topic from the FIAR study, but really...when it comes to spending time with lemons, how can you pass up the opportunity to investigate more acids? How?

We adored Lentil -- made the best lemon layer cake, too -- here's a link to my post about it!
