I took this one with the flash. It's kinda cool to see how the light reflected back off of that center flake. It's a shame tho because that was the ONE flake that I was trying to get a picture of! It was so intricate!
Our current unit is on time. Sounds lame doesn't it? Well we're really getting into it. We started with the Sumerian, Babylonian, Mayan, and Egyptian calendars yesterday. Today we'll read about sun clocks and water clocks. There will be a lesson on the upcoming leap year and we'll finish up with the Atomic age and the Automated Computer Time Service. It's very interesting and the boys are really into it. They made flipbooks with the information they learned yesterday. Each panel opens to reveal the info about each culture's calendar.
Yep, I realize that Calendar is spelled wrong. T2 actually spelled it correctly on his. Will miracles ever cease?
I'll post all the links and books that we used soon.
