fall 2006 homeschooling, getting ready for winter

Ok, so the photo doesn't correspond, but this is a picture from a Homeschooling Group trip to a nearby Firestation. One of the firefighters gave a nice program on fire safety to the kids, then we got the grand tour of the fire house and all the trucks and equiptment. The kids got to sit in a couple of the trucks and try out some of the equiptment. It was a really cool morning.

But anyway, the first half of November's theme was Getting Ready for Winter. We read books about hibernation and how animals survive the winter. We hung out bird feeders for the birds. We sang songs about late fall and bears and the coming winter. We took turns pretending we were various animals getting ready for winter.
