STEM Saturday: Turkey Anatomy

Most of the country is preparing to have a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, turkey included. But what are you going to do with that 20lb bird carcass once the meal is over?

Our family has a little tradition, it started when LittleMan was just shy of two years old and it continues on, over half a decade later. We call it the “Black Friday Turkey Dissection,” and every year it gets a little more complex.

St Patrick’s Day Gross Motor Activities for Homeschool Gym Day

We are members of a couple different local homeschool groups. One of our groups meets monthly for “gym day” which is basically just a time when the children can run off some energy with their peers in a safe, enclosed area. Of course free play is encouraged on gym days but we also supply activities to entertain the children. Because gym days are a monthly event, we try to keep supplies and prep time to a minimum. This month was March so we planned a St Patrick’s Day theme to our activities.
