Science and Geography Fair
Friday night, our homeschool coop had their science and geography fair. This was a way to showcase what the children had learned this year. Each child chose a topic to research and present. Ann-Marie chose Italy - people, places and pizza. Evan chose the 3 biomes of Assateague Island. They worked very hard and did a wonderful job on their displays.
Evan's best buddies - Joseph and Silas.
The preschool crew - Trenton, Judah, Jeslyn, Kaelyn, and Alec.
The other part of the evening was the "press conference." The children were grouped according to a subject they learned about during the year - space, Columbia, 7 wonders of the world, and China. The dads in the audience were given "press passes" and could ask questions of the children pertaining to the subject. The kids did very well and it was an entertaining and informative evening. The preschool also sang a song and recited a verse.
We were very blessed to be a part of this group this year...it truly enriched our first year of homeschooling. The kids are sad that it is over for the school year and are already talking about the Fall!
