Tonight we dissected a shark for marine biology. I don’t think Megan enjoyed it as much as the starfish, but once she got over the smell she had fun finishing it off.
It smelled gross! I liked poking it and it was really fun trying to make it look disgustinger. I poked the eyes into little tiny bits, and made them pop out. They popped back in. I was scrambling the brain.
I think we learned more then my science book planned, like what colour the liquid in an eyeball is and that sharpies draw mustaches on sharks. The book seems just to be concerned with us knowing the location of the “inards”. I am so glad that we are allowed to play with the shark longer and explore on our own.
I got a drawing program for my computer. I don’t like it as much as drawing on paper, but I have more control over the colours and textures. It’s also neat watching the mirror image growing on the other side of the picture.
One of the things we did for the first day of school is paint. I prefer dry media because I can put my hand on it without letting it dry. I think if I could figure out the water to paint ratio I’d like it better.
One of the things we do at Lake Ann is chapel. All of the different age groups get different speakers except for the last day which is combined chapel. Before Mr. Rudolph or who ever is going to speak, Heartsong comes up to lead worship. We always learn new songs but I like it more when we review old ones.
I am looking forward to camp this year! We are going next week and I hope to see some people we know from around here. Our old church is sending a bus load the same week we are going!
