Earth Day is Coming!

Earth Day is Sunday, April 22nd. Do you have any lessons prepared to celebrate this very important day?

If you don't, you need look no further than TEACHERS Pay TEACHERS (TpT), an open marketplace for educators.

Each week I receive an e-mail notifying me of 10 Free Downloads. This week, there are some great Earth Day downloads! Brynne and I will be incorporating:

The Great Kapok Tree ~ Celebrating Earth Day by Cooperative Learning 365
Earth Day Report Card by Runde's Room
Lorax Earth Day Craftivity by Mel D

On Friday afternoon, after we get home from Co-op, we are going to watch the movie, The Lorax.

We will also be going to the zoo on Saturday because our local zoo is having an Earth Day celebration.

If you want to do different activities, TpT has 789 Earth Day Materials you can choose from. Some are free, some are at a minimal cost.

I encourage you to stop by the site, look it over, download some great materials and SIGN UP FOR THE WEEKLY E-MAILS! Scroll to the bottom of this link to sign up. I get some great free lesson plans from this weekly e-mail.

Celebrate Earth Day with your students! It's a great thing to do!

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
