Fourth Grade - Science

Today we started Apologia's Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology. Did I ever study any of this in school? It's been so long I can't remember...

The suggested schedule is for covering the material in a lesson twice a week.  But it is sooooo long - Samuel does better with short periods of study - 15 minutes. 20 max.  I was so excited about the new book that I forgot about Samuel's attention span.    This picture was taken right after beginning the process of mummifying an apple.  I should have stopped after taking this picture...

Anyway. I will once again tweak the schedule so that we have science 4 times a week - shorter periods of time. Happy faces.
