Dinosaur Resources

Dinosaur graphic from Science Kids

We have a MAJOR dinosaur lover in this house!! Colin has been a complete and total dinosaur fan since he was about 1 1/2! We have studied them over and over and over. We have read just about every dinosaur book out there. We have TONS of toy dinosaurs strewn from end of the house to the other. We’ve put together wooden dino skeletons. You name it and we’ve probably done it. LOL BUT it’s been a little while since we’ve gotten into the nitty gritty of an actual dinosaur unit study and I figure its time has come.

If you’ve ever wondered what you get in a Magic School Bus Kit here’s a picture of the opened dinosaur kit.

magic school bus dinosaurs 1

You get everything but the book up in the top left corner.

Here are a couple more pictures of Cailey and Colin using their kit.

Gosh, they were SO TINY!!! We did this kit about 3 years ago!!! My goodness!!!

I’ve actually been asked to a few paid posts but since they were for products that I have never used I refused. I want y’all to be able to trust my opinion on products.

Laura Ingalls Wilder – Resources


Laura Ingalls Wilder

 

 

 

Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Birthday is February 7th!! We just LOOOOVE Half-Pint around here so I thought I would throw together some resources for her AND the book series.

I can remember playing Little House on the Prairie when I was a kid. My cousin and I always fought over who got to be Laura. Neither of wanted to be Mary, we thought she was too much of a goodie-two-shoes and Carrie was always too little!

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.

Let me say that I am NOT affiliated in ANY way with ANY companies. I don’t get a dime for you clicking over to Amazon or Currclick or any other site. I am just trying to put together as many great resources as I can find to give you and me plenty of options. 😉

Groundhog Day Resources


groundhog day

 

Groundhog graphic from My Cute Graphics

 

Is it cold where you are???? As I am writing this it is 12 feels like -1. Which would be OK if we actually had SNOW!! But no, no snow here. It snowed in Louisiana but not HERE!! What’s a person have to do???

My point is, I bet you can’t wait for spring, right?? And I bet you are going to be watching ol’ Punxsutawney Phil to see how much longer we have to put with this! 😉 To help you get the most out of Groundhog’s Day I’ll be listing some resources for a unit study!

Now might be a good time to check out weather resources, too! (Scroll down to science to see all of weather resources and activities.)

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

If you don’t have a Kindle it’s very easy to add the app to your computer, tablet or phone. I think I have it on every device in the house! 😉 The same goes for the Nook. The reason I list Kindle books is because a lot of times you can find them for FREE or very cheap.

Mozart – Resources for a Unit Study


mozart

I am finally adding some music resources on here! LOL We “do” music all the time but we more or less just listen and discuss. Every once in a while we might do like we did with The Nutcracker and I will have them paint or draw how the music makes them feel or what it makes them think of.

This will be just the first of many art and music unit study resources that I will do here. I have Jackson Pollock on my next list (his Birthday is January 28th)! 😉

ANYWAY, Mozart’s Birthday is January 27th and I thought there may be some people out there that will be needing some ideas and resources. 😉

I’ve been thinking about writing up a post on how we do nature studies. Is that of interest? I have tons of great pictures! 😀

I’ve also been thinking about a post on my “methods”……. I consider myself an “eclectic” homeschooler. Any interest there?

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

Squirrel Appreciation Day – Resources


squirrel appreciation day

 

 

Squirrel image – TheGraphicsFairy

I had written up a unit on penguins for Penguin Awareness Day (tomorrow) but then I realized, so had everyone else! LOL Do you really need another one? Probably not right now. So, I decided to go ahead and post the one I did for Squirrel Appreciation Day (January 21st). I haven’t seen any of those yet! LOL

The thing is, a lot of bloggers do the same theme around the same time. Right after I posted the one for Winter Olympics, I saw dozens of others. DRAT!! If I had waited just a little longer I could have added them to my list! LOL The same with the penguins. I had my list all written out when I started seeing all the others. Now I’ll just wait until the rest are done, add them to my list and post at a much later date. LOL Turn it from Penguin Awareness Day to just a study on penguins. 😉

I am at a loss as to what to do about the Iditarod unit. It has been really hard to find a lot of resources for it. Do I wait and see if any more come out? Or do I post it soon? Hmmm….

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

Weather Activities


Weather Activities

 

 

 

We are still studying weather around here. We have had QUITE the variety to study, too. LOL Snow, sleet, freezing rain, ice, rain, sun, freezing cold and regular cold. LOL 

Here is a link to the resources that I put together for a weather unit study and you can click HERE for some more activities for studying weather. For ALL of my homeschooling resources and activities click HERE.

 

Now on to our most recent weather activities!!

 

Make a Cloud

 

We made a cloud!!! It was sooooo hard to get a picture of it!! I hope you can tell where it was! LOL 

I got the idea from HERE. I didn’t have a pie tin so we used a cake pan instead. 😉 HERE is another one. Darn! I wish I had some matches! LOL 

 

weather cloud activity 005 weather cloud activity 006

Before creating the cloud in a jar, we made the 3 main types of clouds out of cotton balls. 

 

 

weather atmosphere activity 003 weather atmosphere activity 004

 

 

I had them draw and label the atmosphere, marking where weather happens the most. 

Well, I labeled Colin’s for him. 😉

 

Next, for our weather unit, I plan on using more of the Young Scientist Kit that we have. LOVE those kits!!!!!! 

 

Coming up tomorrow (if it all dries in time) I should have a REALLLLLLLLLLLY cool Middle Ages activity for you! Cailey and Colin had so much fun creating them! 😉

As well, as the resources I have provided, there are so many other branches to study when looking at Russia: music, ballet, art, literature, history, architecture. Go ahead and follow those rabbit trails! 😉

What We’ve Been Up To (Besides FREEZING!!!)


We have been SO busy and SO cold!!! Single digit highs for the south?? INSANE!!!! Our sliding door on the van was frozen shut for DAYS!! It finally opened yesterday afternoon!  Thank goodness!

So, just what have we been up to???

 

Carousel 011 Carousel 013

 

We went to the mall last weekend. Cailey and Colin loved the indoor carousel!

It’s a bit different for us here. It takes almost an hour to get to a mall!!! WHAT??? Crazy!!!!

We then headed over to the huge used book store. Unfortunately someone decided to have a massive meltdown so he and I ended up sitting it out in the van. SIGH….. I did manage to snag some great freebies from the free box, though!

 

Water Cycle Collage

 

We have been studying the weather. Cailey and Colin drew the water cycle.

 

Weather 030

 

We made a wind vane!! An actual working wind vane! LOL It was accurate and everything!

 

 

Motte and Bailey Castle 021 Motte and Bailey Castle 022

 

We also started our middle ages unit. We were going to make actual dirt, grass and wood models of motte and bailey castles but the GROUND IS FROZEN!!!!!!  So they drew them instead. 😉

 

Shield and Sword Papier Mache 016

 

Yesterday we started making papier mache shields and swords. I’ll be posting the finished products soon! 😉

 

What have you been up to???
