We did a great literature based unit study on Mary Anning using Stone Girl, Bone Girl - Branch Out World's Picture Book Explorers. I think the girls would be hard pressed to pick out just one as their favourite activity from this study but my favourite was the fossil making.
Sunflower now wants a trip to Dorset just to hunt for fossils.
Our local Home Ed group had a fun activity based on the history of sweets where we got to make some old fashioned marshmallows,
design their own marchpane sweets (Tudor sweets),
made Egyptian sweets (spiced stuffed dates)
and had a tasting session
The girls also attended a weaving workshop
and spotted some Morris dancers.
Top that off with a broody hen, a new queen bee and making beeswax candles (Bday pressie for me from the girls) and that wraps up April : )
