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.
We visited Master Grafix in Tupelo to learn about screen printing. It was fascinatingly educational opportunity!
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.
Arjun and I learnt about cells and so, we made cell model.
Arjun hopes to participate in as many homeschooler days as possible this academic year.
January: Explored nature’s acoustics throughout the Zoo. From quacks, to moos, to cock-a-doodle-doos, Arjun learnt how animals communicate by using their own unique styles. He created a popsicle stick harmonica and learnt about sound waves and wavelengths.
November: Dissection of snail!
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!
