Adventures in Life Science

September 16, 2007

Chers Amis,

This year we are embarking on year two of our weekly science club. Same bat-time, same bat -channel, but this year we will be exploring the wonders of biology and human anatomy/systems. Thus the new moniker Adventures in Life Science! Can you hear Caddie squealing in delight?  No, she is too busy reading the Life Science textbook I bought to use as a spine.   (She does read ‘normal’ fiction books in addition to the field guides and  nature tomes.)   We will  probably start our first   semester  16-week tour of cells, life processes, and  the Kingdoms: Monera, Protista, Fungi and Plantae next week. It will be a combination of lectures, hands-on experiments and investigations mixed with a healthy dose of nature study and Montessori three-part cards and a sprinkling of field trips.  I will keep you posted as our more formalized plans emerge.  If it is anything like last year it will be messy, exciting and enjoyable.  I can’t wait!!!!

    I’m glad you love science now! I LOVED science as a child… and still do! But, I hated history. And now I love it!

    Can’t wait to hear about your group. Sounds like a blast!
