This week…

Happy Friday the 13th! As we continued learning about the weakening magnetic shield of the earth we discovered that the likely cause for this is that the magnetic poles are preparing to shift or trade places.  Scientists think they have evidence to show this has happened over and over.  Surprisingly, there seems to be minor disruption to living things.  At least that is what the experts say.  Whew!  Now I feel better…

Our presentations about Africa are now over.  We will have a short break before beginning our studies about Australia.  I must say that I learned a lot about the living things in Africa.

Our Zany Zoo visit was a perfect ending to a great area of study.

We decorated Valentine bags to hold all our hearts and goodies and the kids are very excited about the prospect of stickers, cards, and play tattoo’s…not necessarily in that order.

Next week and beyond…

Next week we continue our studies about magnetism and finish our work on Africa with some fun art projects.  I will try to slip in some discussions about pollination and the little buggers that do all the work so we don’t have to!

As mentioned, Australia is looming large on our classroom horizon as Africa begins to fade.  We will begin our studies by looking at the Great Barrier Reef.  This is where our first Aussie presentations will begin as well.
