We had no complaints, even for doing copywork. But we did do more than the product asked for.
When reading through the creation lesson it had vocab words underlined so I just asked the lad...what does this mean, what about that?
Then I asked...do you know the sign language for day? no.. they have that mom? Yes, indeed, so I showed him. This led to him asking what the sign would be for night. We found that over at the American Sign Language site.
the lad didn't understand what a galaxy was so we looked it up
- A system of millions or billions of stars, together with gas and dust, held together by gravitational attraction.
- The galaxy of which the solar system is a part; the Milky Way.
we had fun looking for images of the universe, the earth and the milky way galaxy. We talked about the differences in the images and WHY they might be different. We had quite the discussion on how they could have pictures of the whole universe because that would be really hard to do as "BUT MOM, we are PART of the universe so how can we get out of it to take a picture??" (do you have an answer to that one?)
