Superbowl, Living in Space, Solar System and Universe

Well the New Orleans Saints did it! They defeated the Colts, and are the new Superbowl Champs. Many congrats to them. It was a good game, the commercials stunk, and the first half was pretty near boring. The second half lit it up, and became a good game.

Last Tuesday DJ did a Science lesson where he had to pretend he was living on another planet, and sent an email home to Earth. Tomorrow we are expanding that with video one of a five parts called Living in Space. It is from the History channel, and I will share all five parts, over the coming weeks. There are two other videos covering the Solar System, and our Universe, also below. Include them in your lesson plans, or just for fun for your kids to enjoy. Be sure to check out the new learn to draw website I found.

It sounds like you have a very busy day planned. I love the videos on the planets and space. We have been studying those this past week so it was nice to see the videos about the solar system. I also love the new drawing site you found.

I try to even out the days, so no days are any busier than others, but it never seems to work that way LOL.

Shocks, you're on full schedule, Melissa. I love the lessons you outlined for DJ and Caitlin, very interesting. Bianca is down with fever so she can't view your videos for now. We'll go back for these when she's okay. She always enjoys your videos here.

Rochelle, I am sorry to hear Bianca is not feeling well. Give her a big hug from all of us.
