Zhara has decided that she wants to study germs first, so germs it is. I am printing out some stuff that we can look over for basic concepts, and I thought we could hit the library for more info. I thought it would be fun to tie it into some current events about the hysteria regarding swine flu and the histories of outbreaks and influenzas. I like the idea that Rebecca Rupp has in her book of creating fun workbooks that the kids can read, write, or color in, so I'm trying to make one up for Zhara. I'm gonna add some blank pages for her to write and draw her own stuff in. I found a cool website from the American Museum of National History with germ games for kids. I think she'll like that.
