Fossil Dig

It's been FOREVER since I've blogged here...but, since I've cut back on photography, I really want to try to keep up here.

Today for school we did a project with sand, leaves, rocks, and plaster....oh yeah, and chicken bones(of course my dog at mine, but, luckily my friend had extras. :O)) The kids had a blast putting it together. Then we let it set and taked about how fossils are formed. After about an hour we peeled away the cartons and they dug out their bones. They had a blast!

Me and the boys are also going through an awesome book by Ken Ham called Dinosaurs for Kids. I've learned alot from it. It teaches kids to question scientists and how to defend creation.

Here are some pics from today...it was VERY messy...but, that just made it more fun for them. :o)

I guess you could say we do somewhat of a classical approach...but, I don't try do it that way really. I try to incorporate a lot of different things into our days. Both of my boys are so different so we do things very different with each of them.
