We have been trying to satiate The Boy's incredible hunger for knowledge by having him pick topics he would like to learn about each week. He has a list of things like teeth, construction, the earth's rotation...etc., etc. This week, he wanted to learn about the skeletal system. Too bad our friend who is an orthopedic surgeon moved to Virginia for the year.
For each topic he wants to learn more about, I search for a book to read and a few activities to do related to the topic. This weekend we made a pretzel skeleton after learning about the major bones in the body. His favorites are the phalanges. We learned about the digestive system before Christmas...good thing I took Anatomy and Physiology in college. I worked hard for that B+. That knowledge is all being used for good now. I have to say, that pelvis looks great!
