Cooperative Learning Day


Thursday was our first Cooperative Learning Day for our Homeschool Group. We have 11 families in the group right now with children's ages ranging from infant to 13 years old. We thought it would be fun to get together once a month to do a hands on Science Class, Music, Art, PE, and have lunch and recess together. This month's theme was the migration of the Monarch Butterfly. We read books on the Monarch, migrated like Monarchs (some didn't make it to Mexico City due to the hurricane), labeled the parts of a butterfly, made a butterfly snack, listened to music about butterflies, and colored butterflies to be shipped to Mexico City. They will stay there until it is time for the Monarchs to return and then our group will get a return package of Monarchs. We also can track their progress online. The children had a lot of fun and are looking forward to next month's class.
