Homeschool Co-ops

I thought I would share some memories we have made in homeschool this year. Two particular note-worthy events we participated in were co-ops, one on Australia and one on birds.

We really enjoyed both these co-ops, and we all learned so much. Here are some photos from the Australia Co-op:
learning about the geographical features of Australia

learning about animals that are native to Australia

here, the "platypus" had to cross the finish line while carrying his egg between his legs

making boomerangs

making an "emu" refrigerator magnet

"A Taste of Australia" - he didn't like shrimp on the barbie

The next co-op we participated in was about birds. We spent a full year studying birds two years ago, using Apologia's Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day. We learned SO much about birds that year and I was very excited to see how much they remembered during this co-op! Here are some photos:

egg races

holding baby chicks

learning about the anatomy of a bird's feather

discussing the structure and parts of an egg

making pine cone feeders to hang in the trees

learning about different types of bird nests, and how to attract birds to your yard
