Leia is finally able to join us in the school room most of the time without being a disruption. She and Caitlyn, are enjoying hiding in the tent this year when they can. I love that Caitlyn can do school and hang out with our fur baby at the same time.

Apologia Flying Creatures – Lesson 1

We started our study of Apologia’s flying creatures this year, after doing land animals and swimming creatures the last two years. The first lesson was a general overview of flight and also a look at how animals are classified.

We did this short simple experiment on air pressure. Caitlyn loved it, and she cracked up every time the water spurted.

She also built two gliders and did test flights to determine which design was more aerodynamic.

So far she’s really enjoying science!
