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!!

  6. Wow! Dawson did a great job. I have been anticipating his creative cells from when you mentioned him having to do one a couple of post ago. These are awesome and now I am hungry! ;)

    Thank You. I have children that learn so differently. Dawson and you have helped encourage me to grab those moments of teaching outside the box.

  8. HI! I love your son's creativity! I am planning to use the plant cell cookie in my Classical Conversations class on Friday. Can you tell me what he used to create the cookie? It looked like Hot Tamales, but that was all I could really see for sure! Thank you!

    1. The cookie is made with red sprinkles for the nucleus, a gummy lifesaver, hot tamales, and black icing. Hope your group has fun!

    1. I honestly don't know where we got the images. My son just pulled them up on his iPhone. I'd just google animal cell and plant cell images and see what comes up.

    1. That was a long time, lol! It looks like I used black olive slices, green and red pepper slices, a piece of thin sliced ham, a mushroom button, onion slices, and pepperonis. Have fun!

Science Sunday ~ Hmmm ... Let Me Think About It!

This week in our study of the Human Body , Brynne moved on to the Nervous System . Our first stop was a Pamela Hill Nettleton book called, Think, Think, Think: Learning About Your Brain . As part of our discussions about the brain , and the fact that it's the BOSS of the body, we discussed the importance of the spinal cord . We did a hands on spinal cord project by alternating gummy Life Savers and wagon wheel pasta on a pipe cleaner. We talked about why there was the "squishy" stuff in between the vertebra and how the back can bend and sway because of it. We completed "The Brynne" by adding the stomach, small intestine and large intestine, from our study last week of the Digestive System (although I just realized I have the large intestine coming out of the stomach, when the small intestine should be) and the brain and spinal cord. We are now done talking about the parts of the body and will conclude our study of the Human Body with a two-day unit

ABCya

Eli's reading resource teacher shared a website with me yesterday that I would like to pass along. It's called ABCya . There are separate educational sections with fantastic games for ages kindergarten through 5th grade. I browsed the 2nd grade level, and it includes age-appropriate games about Letters, Numbers, Shapes, Geometry, Patterns, Mouse Manipulation, Art and Holiday games. There are lots and lots of fun and creative games for children to play. They are fun, but oh, so educational. Eli's favorite, in his short time playing it, was Create a Car . A lot of the games also have Apps available for purchase (99 cents for most of them) for the iPad and iPhone. I have been looking for another free website for games similar to Starfall , for some time. I think I have found it. I can feel confident having Eli and Brynne play these games.
