Chess

We had 4-week, 1-hour group classes with a chess coach at home. There were 7 kids (including Kabir and Arjun) in the group. It was fun! Kabir has joined the chess club and Stanford OHS and enjoys playing online with his friends once a week. Arjun tries to get Amit or Kabir to play with him whenever they have time.

Fungi and Other Life Sciences

Arjun and I have been studying life sciences. After studying about fungi, Arjun collected mushrooms, grew mold on a piece of bread and did a presentation about fungi.

Having studied bacteria and other organisms, he created Jeopardy questions. Amit and Kabir participated. Kabir won! The 4 categories for Jeopardy were: Diseases, Organisms, Bacteria and Definitions.

 

Homeschooler Days in Memphis Zoo

Arjun participates in as many homeschooler days as possible this academic year.

September: Zoo in Motion! What goes up must come down! They explored motion in a zoo-tacular way. Ever wonder why ducks fly in a V or how a sea lion moves so quickly through the water? They discussed and examined Newton’s three laws of motion and how they apply to the Zoo every day!
