The Joy of the Earth is always a fun unit to teach. We get to do so many wonderful things this month! I can't wait to make homemade apple sauce with the Joyschoolers.
We are learning how wonderful our Earth is as well as our responsibilty in preserving, cultivating, and protecting the Earth.
Fall is in the air! It may be Florida, but we do have a little taste of Fall weather. The days grow shorter, the leaves fall off (just turn brown...no wonderful yellows, reds, or oranges...) and the weather is a little cooler...you know like 80 degrees. Some mornings we actually get to wear a sweater. BUT, really, who can really complain about the Fall weather in Florida? It is mild, pleasant, and you get to do lots of outdoor activities, like go to the beach for Thanksgiving!
We made nature viewers and went for a nature walk...we didn't get far before we noticed a huge banana spider in the Palm tree.
