FIAR-The Story of Ping


We rowed this book at the end of fall and enjoyed it so much!
Monday we read the story, then we talked about China and he colored in a map.



We also made a flag of China.  I gave a piece of white cardstock.  Then I had him tear pieces of red tissue paper.  I watered down some glue and had him use a paint brush to apply the glue to the paper. 



 I gave him some gold foil stickers.  I had an extra star left over from VBS, so I spray painted it gold for him!


We also talked about the culture of China and I had him color this picture:

We painted a plate, 2 hands, and a circle yellow.  I cut out the feet and duck bill out of orange construction paper.

Thursday

We colored our Ping family for math.


The we did our buoyancy activity.

We did a worksheet on the life cycle of a duck.  You can find it here:

We also cut 2 ducks out of a brown paper bag.  I sprayed one with cooking oil and left the other one plain.  I had him put water in an eye dropper and see what happens.  Then we discussed that ducks can't get wet because they have oil on their feathers.

All in all a fairly good row!

Blessings!
