Our calendar to through the end of the week...
This week's theme was The Heavens Tell God's Glory!
Day 15 ~ The Sun
We made Sunshine Shakes! (I forgot to take pictures, we were in a hurry to get to the library)
6-ounces frozen concentrated OJ
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup water
6 ice cubes
Blend together in a blender. Makes 4 servings.
I found this to be just so-so, next time I'll use all milk and no water. Or maybe yogurt... hmmm....
We also read a few books:
Sunshine Makes the Seasons by Franklyn Branley
The Sun by Seymour Simon
Day 16 ~ The Cloud
1 Kings 8:2-11
We looked around NASA's website for information on cloud formation. The Professor was *thrilled* to do this. They even found a video!
We read The Cloud Book by Tomie dePaola.
Day 17 ~ The Rain
We read a few books:
Where Does the Butterfly Go When it Rains?
Rabbits and Raindrops
Down Comes the Rain
Day 18 ~ The Lightning
Flash, Crash, Rumble and Roll
Thundercake by Patricia Polacco
Day 19 ~ The Hail
We ended up not doing anything this day, too much else got in the way :(
Day 20 ~ The Wind
We read Feel the Wind. And decorated our dragon cake!
Day 21 ~ The Rainbow
We read Planting a rainbow by Lois Ehlert.
We were going to paint rainbows and make a rainbow fruit salad, but
Overall it was a fun week and we're looking forward to next week :) Stop by Catholic Cuisine to see other garden parties :)
