A rainy day doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun learning! While we got to enjoy our corn dogs and vegetables, Miss Hanna read to us a story about the salmon life cycle in the book The Life Cycle of a Salmon by Ruth Thomson. She even had little figurines for the kids to take a closer look at the different stages of life. After learning about the life of salmon, we jumped into learning about Panama! Marshall helped read All Around the World: Panama. Panama bridges North and South America with Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. The kids were excited to learn more about the Panama Canal as we read All Around the World: Panama Canal. Before the canal was built, it would take ships a dangerous six months to travel around South America to bring goods from France to California. The kids and I talked about the struggles building the canal such as mosquitoes, the mountains, and landslides. That’s when we learned the parts of the Panama Canal: locks, gates, and the artificial lake (Gatun Lake). There was a man who swam the entire canal. Would you like to swim across the Panama Canal?
Happy Birthday to Bailey!
We got our hydroponic garden planted! Each child took turns filling pods with seeds and putting it in the tower. We are so ecstatic to see our herbs, vegetables, and flowers grow!
