The graphite drawing class went well this week, so we'll continue to have an "away class" at Pastimes for a Lifetime studio. And I chanced upon a Chinese tudor online who might make a nice addition to Liam's studies. Sometimes other languages help us tune in more closely to our own. And Chinese is a really cool language with an amazing writing system.
Liam built a short PowerPoint presentation each day, on the science topic we studied. We start with a BrainPop movie (these are all from the "Diversity of Life" unit). After the movie, we reviewed some of the fun questions and went online to find out more about a detail that interested him.
Here are the slides from this week's lessons (the font choices did not translate into the still slides - they're actually much cooler looking than this):
|I like how he played with the word "amphibians"|
|Even though the language is a little advanced, it gives us a chance to look up words and do more research on concepts he doesn't get. By reviewing the presentations every day, he has more chances to think about it.|
