Welcome to the December 2, 2012 Edition of …
The Simple Science Strategies Blog Carnival!
Liz E presents “Worm Farming Adventures,” posted at Homeschooling in Buffalo, a beautiful photo gallery of her family’s worm bin project. This is a great “Potpourri” addition to the carnival! If you’ve never had a worm bin in your homeschool or classroom, try one this winter — it’s a great way to bring nature inside when it’s too cold to play outside.
Autumn Nature Finds…
From our house, we present “Ten (10) Fall Nature Studies: What the Leaves Have Kept Hidden”, posted at A Child’s Garden. We also submitted this to the “Top 10 Tuesday” Blog Carnival – a list of all the interesting things we have found on our travels this month.
Thanks for your submissions! Remember, each submission earns the entrant a free e-Book of science journaling pages.
The Winter Simple Science Strategies Blog Carnival Begins!
December is a short month for many of us, because of parent conferences, winter holidays, and family vacations. For this reason, the next Blog Carnival will be a December/January edition, or a Winter Edition. Here are the details for the upcoming edition:
Topics for the edition
- Patterns in Nature
- The Winter Sky
Scientific and Engineering Practices
- Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking
Disciplinary Core Ideas
