Here are the kids' notebooks. Just a binder with some lined paper for now. We'll add all the things the kids do over our study, notes, pictures, drawings, etc. So far they have colored the cover. Aaron wanted to draw his own lighthouse rather than color the one I printed up for him. I thought that was pretty cool.
Lighthouse of Alexandria" in ancient Egypt. We noticed that there was a mosaic picture on the wiki information page about the Alexandria lighthouse. That inspired this project. I'd also remembered about the mosaics that Sea Star did with her kids, so I thought this would be fun. The kids loved it, and I think they did a great job with them. I like how they turned out as well.
|Aaron's mosaic. He didn't want to draw the lighthouse this time, and opted to use the printed picture.|
|April drew hers. She said she wanted to fill the whole page with sequins, but it takes a long time! I think hers came out pretty anyway.|
|Aric just liked putting a lot of sequins all over. He's too young to appreciate a mosaic picture yet.|
