Wanted to share about another fun Beyond FIAR co-op day with The Boxcar Children. There are so many fun hands-on lessons to do! I always enjoy seeing someone else's take on a lesson too! The others always come up with something different than I would have done! It's a great way to share experiences, talents and interests with each other.
We started with a devotion on this beautiful sunny day in April (yes, I'm behind still). We sat around on the front lawn and enjoyed our outdoor classroom. Today we were covering some of the lessons found in Chapters 7-9.
Much of the lesson was spent talking about the benefits of pasture-raised eggs and how eggs come naturally. Did you know that the egg yolk should be orange? And that a green "egg white" is alright?
We were all intrigued by the variety of colors in the egg shells. We learned about the types of chickens laying the different colored eggs.
After talking about eggs, it was time to find some! As an interesting twist, the children 8 and under looked on the ground for their eggs and those older had to look up!
They used their paper cones to collect eggs. What a fun way to end our morning!
Thanks Julie and Vickie for a wonderful day!
