Learning about senses at co-op

JayBird had another great day at his homeschool co-op. They have been learning about the senses. He did a great job applying information he learned at the co-op with information he has learned elsewhere, as after the co-op he went on to tell me that our sense all work together so they can do more than what they could do alone. He learned over the summer that team work is working together to do more than you can do alone. So he applied it to his lessons on the senses. I love how he makes all these connections! They tried tasting some foods with their nose plugged, which made it difficult to taste – so the senses were not working together in that situation. JayBird informed me that his favorite activity of the day was touching stuff, like squishy things, cold things, rough things.

Co-op was very hands on this week with the activities that they did and the crafts that they made. Here is what JayBird made in just the few hours that he was there:

Now on to field trips for the rest of the week! It is a packed week!
