We wrapped up our first week of summer session 2 (the summer sessions are held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) Our theme for this session is the state we live in: Florida. My initial plan was to talk about plants and animals in that live in Florida, but I realized that was a bit too broad. I decided to spend the first week talking about how to locate Florida on a map, the different land forms associated with Florida (peninsula, gulf, lake, island) and the differences in salt water and fresh water. For the weeks that follow we would discuss common animals and plants found living around salt water and those living near bodies of fresh water. We will also spend time talking about land animals, the different types of palm trees and hurricanes.
Here are a few links to my videos on YouTube, describing the lessons that I presented during our first week of the summer session.
