Here’s a little glimpse in to our homeschooling life this week, featuring the Melbourne Museum. Yay for museums!
On one of the warmer days, DeeW went off on a beach adventure with Husband. No photos there, but they had a good time being beach geeks.
Arthur loves Kerbal Space Program. Check it out, it’s a fab program. It has become Arthur’s number one favourite:
Father and son reading What if? xkcd. They read it together so they can have a discussion. I love hearing Arthur giggling at it:
Flower pressing with DeeW for some art work in a few weeks:
Arthur’s reading pile, courtesy of many library visits:
I kept forgetting to take photos of the numeracy/literacy stuff, hopefully next time 🙂
Today we visited the Melbourne Museum. We were there for about three and a half hours and still didn’t see everything. With our free entry, I’m not that fussed and we’ll go back again before the weather starts getting too hot. We often visit these school-y kinds of places in the afternoon, when school excursion groups have gone home and we get everything to ourselves 😉
This piece of amber contains 35 million year old fossil insects. Phwooooar, geek out!
An 1860 printing of The Origin of Species:
Husband took the kids to the playground by the Museum when we were done, while I had a quick browse in the shop:
I ended up buying these to be used as part of our Australian Studies next year. The DK Human Body book will be used as part of our Life Science studies:
The Royal Exhibition Building, opposite the Museum and IMAX:
I’m looking forward to returning to the Museum to see this. Husband says Timothy Dalton was hands down the best bond. I’m inclined to agree, only because one of my favourite cheesy movies is Flash Gordon:
Hope you enjoyed the first of my homschooling specific ‘weeks that were’ 🙂
