Today for science, we are starting off by watching 3 Brain Pop Jr. videos for my 1st grader: Fall, Seasons, and Trees. He will then re-read the books he read on Epic!, yesterday. As well as, have the opportunity to read any new books.
For my 4th grader, he will watch on Brain Pop: Seasons, Autumn Leaves, and Photosynthesis. He will also re-read books on Epic!, and have the opportunity to explore new books on Fall.
Brain pop and Brain Pop Jr, are monthly subscriptions or you can pay yearly. To see family and homeschool options go here. Otherwise, if you just google “Brain Pop”, you’ll see pricing for schools. I do not make a commission off of Brain Pop. However, I do want to share this valuable resource.
Go on a leaf hunt: we go on a daily walk. What I love about the location where we go on a walk, is that there are a variety of trees and plants.
Find a local location where you can really see leaves, trees, and plants changing. On your walk, identify different tree and plant types. If it’s doable, collect different types of leaves to bring back and identify. Use the non-fiction books that you are reading to classify the leaves. Sort leaves by color, shape, and size.
