The basic plan is this...take them places, play, explore, learn and base the week's activities (loosely) on a theme.
We live super close to the Museum District in Houston and to so many wonderful resources. Honestly, it is too hot to spend a ton of time outdoors. As much as I would LOVE having a pool and being outside swimming much of the day, we don't have one and getting to a pool is always a bit of a big chore. Being outside and not being in a pool is just too much for me to handle! Seriously, we have to limit our outdoor time. And, when we head outdoors we have to drink lots of lots of water.
One of the favorite museums of the Els is the Health Museum. It is one of the lesser known museums (meaning it is not crowded) and they have great activities for all ages. This seemed like a good choice for week one. So, we began "Health Week!"
We studied about "organs of the body." And the Els drew their favorite organ and wrote facts about it.
We built things together. We believe being with family is a super healthy way for us to live!
exercising our minds...
Day four, we reviewed what we learned about health. Everything I wrote on the board is their words. My favorite quote was from Trinity- "The stomach. It takes food into the system."
Not sure about the dinosaur exhibit
