FIAR story of Ping and Pond studies.

This week I worked on the story of Ping with my 3 littles. In addition to reading Ping we read many duck stories like:

Duck and Goose
Duck Soup
Pond Babies
A trip to the pond
Ducks, how we grow

A few pages from the story!

Duck soup was a very funny story about a Duck making soup and when he disappeared his friends thought he was in the soup. This tied in nicely with Ping because Ping was almost used as duck soup. We talked about how ducks are a delicacy in China then we made our own duck soup.

We talked about Migration and why some animals do it. Including the Monarchs we are learning about as well.

We also discussed bouency and did the projects in this

In the van this week the kids watched Magic School Bus at the Waterworks on our trips around town.

Here is our 3D pond project

This project came from this book

You can actually see the pond project on the cover.
Great art book with fun easy projects.

We are also studying butterflies (monarchs specifically) here are the the 2 middle kids looking through pictures of caterpillars on the ipad.

My oldest had a week off so nothing of note to say about him.
