Wow, I did such a good job of blogging for the first few months of school and then November hit and I am not sure what happened! We really enjoyed the month of November with our unit on Giant things in this wonderful world. We talked about Mountains, Oceans, Trees, Planets, the Solar System and how our planet revolves around the sun, but my most favorite day was our "indoor field trip" when we went camping! It really pays having a "Boy" Scout in our midst (Mrs. Jackson is our school's Den Master for those of you who didn't already know). She set up the tent, I brought s'mores, and we told stories by lantern light in the library. Let me tell you that 20 bodies in one tent is one hot place! It was a fantastic day and one I will not soon forget!
Some great things to ask the kiddos about are: Log Pole Pines, erosion, the dwarf planet, Great Wall of China, camping, caves and their formations, lions and how far away you can hear their roars, and building skyscrapers. We even saw a picture of Mrs. Haas' family's feet in a glass box on the top of the outside of a skyscraper and we looked down at the streets below us! November was a fantastic month and December is looking pretty exciting too! Bring it on!
