For science we do a couple of things

We learn about Canada. As we engage in our Canadian Studies we are doing art, watching videos. doing some geology (digging up gems/minerals and talking about them), science, math, history and whatever else I can squeeze into a morning. We try to combine as many things as we can on Fridays. Anything we can't work into our Canadian studies we do differently than the rest of the week (and sometimes (oh horrors) skip it completely). :) Newfoundland pt 1 and pt 2. Nova Scotia pt 1 and pt 2. It is by no means a speedy process but we'd rather enjoy the journey eh? :)
