Week 8 & 9: OUR WEEK IN REVIEW
So, Mummy may or may not have gone overseas with Daddy on a child free cruise to the south pacific islands leaving homeschool boys in the very capable hands of grandparents… and that might be why I’ve been a little quiet here on our homeschool blog 🙂
But before I left for nearly two weeks, I took the boys to SEA WORLD!
This is a really worth while homeschool excursion made all the better by the fact that the boys have learnt so much about oceans and the creatures within. Their questions showed how much they had come to understand about the behaviours of animals and life in their habitats throughout the world’s oceans.
And it was so amazing to actually be able to see some of the animals we had studied up close and personal.
The boys had lots of sea faring fun, rides and ice-cream. Mental note to self: do not ride jet ski roller coaster ride three times with eldest sone ever again!
Cyrus has decided on a career as a marine biologist. Either that or a jet ski stunt rider. Frankly, I can see him doing either quiet well.
And as we finish our last three days of term one next week, we hope you all have had a great first term. We’ll be posting some links to our favourite ocean themed science experiments next week as well as some other cool resources we have used during our unit. A huge shout out to Bev and Phil and my mother who bravely stepped in as teacher for our homeschooling boys while hubby and I took a break together. We thank you from the bottom of our well rested hearts 🙂
Until next week remember, it’s a big, small world. Go find you wonder! Love, The Gone Wild Homeschool Boys
