We did another Chalk Pastel art/spring/nature/science lesson. To see the other one, click here. We are really enjoying our time with chalk pastels!
|Zarian's rendition of the American Robin. lovely!|
|Cai decided to draw some grass and the American Robin's eggs :)|
|MY American Robin (ahem) :) I couldn't help myself|
|the boys working on their projects|
|Willow being...Willow....during the lesson. My sweet girl.|
|just for fun, I am showing you this picture of Willow dressed up in a Whitney Houston coat, I mourned her loss for some time then I realized that I will one day meet her in heaven ;) I am at peace now, and so is Whitney, I am sure of it.|
|Whitney probably didn't wear LONGIES with her fancy jacket, but hey, my girl Willow lives in longies ;)|
|gluing the body parts on as the story progresses|
|the one on the left is baby boy #3's. He decided the "body" needed some breasts "cause how else will it nurse the babies???" love that boy, my Cai Ocean!|
We use the" Story of the World" for History and we have been learning about Egyptians. We decided, to go along with the studies, that a pyramid was in order.
|glue, sugar cubes and card stock|
|We needed a Sphinx! the duck became the Sphinx. giggle.|
|the boys were quite proud of their building. I was proud too :)|
Archaeologists believe that the pointed stone at the top of the Great Pyramid even had a golden cap on it. The white stone and the golden top are gone now, but when the Great Pyramid was first built, it shone in the sun.
