Everyday Unschooling is different and filled with adventures. I don’t make educational plans but sometimes the girls come up with great ideas. We started our Unschool day with Belle announcing we were making lampwork beads. Then the girls wanted to learn about flying and the Wright Brothers. My first thought, what the heck our lampwork beads and how our we going to make learning about Wright Brothers fun.
Polymer Clay Lapwork look-alike glass beads
The girls got up this morning and decided they wanted to make Lampwork polymer clay beads jewelry that looked like glass. I found a video on l and we watched and re-watched it several times. Got all our supplies, and we started. It’s was a lot harder than it looks, and it didn’t turn out well. So, we threw it out and will try again another day. After discussing why the process failed, we noticed the liquid clay was too watery. We also needed a better way to apply the dots.
The last couple days we have been learning about The Wright Brothers and their first airplane. We watched a documentary on Netflix, finished reading our book about the Wright brothers and then I tested them again to see how much they retained. The going theme this week is Jeopardy – so I asked them vocabulary questions from the back of the book.
Harry Potter Book
Also, I am very happy to announce that we have finally finished the very first Harry Potter book, and plan on watching the movie this weekend as soon as I find someone to loan it to us. Belle has finished her 2nd Bad Kitty book and Mac just finished Franny K Stien.
