We are in the middle of a study of China so for our art lesson this week I chose a watercolor of a dragon! The kids were so excited. They found an image to inspire them and proceeded to draw, outline and paint their dragon. The teacher could not help but join in :)
Our next class included chinese calligraphy
Then we combined the two and created masterpieces!!!!!
We purchased an egg-ploration :) kit that details the embryonic development of chicks for the 21 days that they are in the egg. Madison has been very diligently showing us an egg from "Babe's nest" every morning. The kids decided to draw the daily development in their science notebook.
As part of our extracurricular activities this year the children will be completing their SCUBA certification and participating in a monthly dive. We are well on our way.
We started with lessons in a classroom:
Then suited up and left for the pool:
Marco and I completed all of our confined water skills, and we all passed our written exam. We were back again the following day to complete two open water dives.
Madison, meanwhile, practiced her snorkeling and received instruction on driving the boat - a 42 ft dive boat - from the Captain. She took us from the harbour to the dive site and from the dive site into the harbour and right up to the bridge!
