C Is For Camel
We’re finding ourselves right down the middle of the line between structured schoolers and unschoolers. No rush, but the kids seem to desire some structure once in a while. This is such a learning experience for all of us!
Part of our latest homeschool curriculum is to choose a letter as well as take turns choosing an animal of the week.
I got the idea to do a letter of the week from Confessions Of A Honeschooler, one of my favorite homeschooling resources.
This week, it was Tavia’s turn to choose so she chose camel. Therefore, the letter of the week is C.
I love that she chose a camel! We learned a lot about camels. I always enjoy learning new things alongside them. Did you know dromedary camels can store up to 80 pounds of fat in their humps?! They can survive on that for a long time in the desert.
We watched a few videos, some educational and some just for fun. The kids got a kick out of Alice The Camel!
Some info came from National Geographic, some from other sources online & from our local library.
We also made some camels of our very own out of egg cartons, markers, glue, & pipe cleaners.
