Science Re-Cap

One chapter left in our Human Anatomy and Physiology book! 

Today we discussed the Lymphatic and Immune Systems. Our resident Doctor/Dad had the children "act out" how the immune system works. (Pictures taken on my phone, not the best quality).

The 5th grade girls as T and B white blood cells

The 3rd grade girls as bad - very bad - bacteria
Demonstrating the use of a petri dish.
We're now awaiting the pleasant growth
of samples from the church bathrooms, door handles, noses etc.
It's been another great year for our group. 

Our family will switch gears after finishing the science book to Medieval History; I'm currently compiling the reading and activity list.
