Today was our final day studying the body in our Kindergarten Homeschool Options class. Since we only met for 4 times during this unit our focus was primarily on blood and what it does for us and how it helps fight against germs that are everywhere even though we can't see them. Last week we each had the opportunity to make a hand print on a gelatin petri dish. Over the week I let the dishes grow at home and today I shared the results with the kids. They were amazed that that many germs grew and were once on their hands. We wrote all about it in our journals, pictures included.
