I simply love the way this book club is working out. We get to spend free afternoons reading and exploring together and then reporting our learnings to the whole group at the end. For the Wright Brothers we spent days reading small portions of the text and then exploring the concepts in different ways. None of it was lesson planned, we just went with the flow. We worked on our lap book, made paper helicopter toys and paper airplanes, practiced flying and tipping our wings the correct way and even measured our wingspans.
While working on Alexander Graham Bell we watched the Animated Heroes video, worked on our lapbook and learned about using tubes to amplify our hearing. It was great to then go to book club, share what we learned and then make tin can telephones as a group.
This format is working fantastically and we're so excited to continue it each month!
