We went to a local co-op learning class on Reptiles this week. It was a good chance to review our existing knowledge on reptiles as well as learn a few more interesting things in a group setting.
I was proud of the boys for remembering to raise their hands before answering the questions. I think it helped that I told them that even if the teacher didn’t call on them, if they knew that they had the correct answer, they should be proud of themselves even if they didn’t get a chance to tell the teacher—- because in addition to them knowing they knew the correct answer, so did God and no one is more important than Him!
For craft time they made snakes by gluing pieces of paper to the snake outline to create scales.
Lesson plan from Museum of Science & History
Reptile relatives lapbook component
Reptile 3/4 book (lapbook)
Lizard Family (lapbook)
I also plan on making a classification activity where the children would sort picture cards into the amphibian or reptile group for their science notebooks.
I will post our lapbook after we complete it.
