Science Sunday: Insect parts




Today’s Science Sunday is brought to you courtesy of my husband.  Can I just say he is the coolest husband ever?  I had to go to the dentist on Monday and asked if he’d be willing to read and discuss one of the sections in their science text book, and not only did he do it, but he went above and beyond the call of duty.


I was so amazingly proud of them when I got back.  I’d say it was almost worth getting that filling, but that would be a total lie.  Look at their drawings of the different body parts.  They did a good job of remembering what it was and being able to explain to me what makes an insect (3 body parts and six legs on the middle body part).



Of course being my kids they turned to the next page and drew all sorts of pictures.  I particularly like Batman’s (in the middle) with the insect that is attacking people, I think.  I’m not entirely sure, he explained this big long epic narrative to me about 3 days ago.


So, did any of you get to have some delightful experiences like that?  I love when things like that happen.

    That's great! 🙂 Love the pictures that they drew too. Our kids love to illustrate what they are learning and it is such a great way to help them 'get it' even better.

    what great drawings! Thank you for linking up to the Homeschool Blog Hop mama! 🙂 Enjoy your week!

  11. Thats great that your hubby helped out. I bet they really responded to that.

    I love the pictures, I'm sure its going to be soo hard for me to decide what schoolwork I am going to want to keep and what I will want to lose. A notebook full of science and original drawings…that would be a toughy for me!
