Time for a body update!
(Well, that ranks up there in the top ten list of things I never thought I would say. Along with, no you may not ___________ (fill in the blank with some horrible stunt) to your brother. Hmmm .... maybe a post for another day. )
We've been working on the digestive system and urinary system this week. Here is Punkin showing off her body. The intestines are not secured yet, so she has to stay laying down for the moment. As I write this, I'm thinking our "body" needs a name. Suggestions, anyone?
So, now it is time for your anatomy quiz. Here is a close up of the new "organs" - with the intestines and without. The "organs" included are:
B. small intestine
C. large intestine
E. Gall Bladder
Can you figure out which ones are which?
I'm coming to believe that it is usual with homeschooling, at least at this house, for mom to be learning as much as (or more) than the kids. However, this is one of Punkin's interests, so this unit is SO MUCH FUN! If I may gush for a minute - it is such a privilege to watch her "get it" and be interested and asking me more questions than I can answer. So, I'm looking in the books for the answers and then trying to figure out how to explain the answer in 5yr old terms. It's a little crazy sometimes.. but for this momma, it's totally worth it.
