We took a field trip to Mount Vernon. The property is wonderful and their museum is awesome. PF is learning Americian History so this is an excellent place to go to reinforce what she is learning hands on.
My mom came up last week. She always brings something for the girls to work on. This time it was Easter baskets made with fabric. They weaved different fabric strips around the paper model. I realized I didn't take a picture of the final product so I will add that later.

Today PF and I worked on experiments for the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. We had so much fun and learned while being hands on. The ideas for these experiments came from the Noeo curriculum we used for science.
