I didn't have a plan for May so I'm thinking I should just follow your Great units, sound fun!

Kudos for having your month planned. I really need to give this some thought this afternoon.

Have a blessed day!

It looks like you have a fun month planned. We will just be plugging away at our regular pace. There are some history related art projects coming up and we may have a field tirp to an IMAX show.

Looks like fun! We will be celebrating my daughter's 11th birthday in May, watching a puppet show with our homeschool group, Homeschool Field Day and closing out another school year :) Have a great day!

Sounds like a fun month! I'll try to remember this for next year so that we can finish our studies and just enjoy the month of May with unit studies like that. :)

We are doing an extensive garden/plant/flower/insect/bird all rolled into one study!

I am using The Very Hungry Caterpillar with my little one as a stemming point for so many things. As well as Jack's Garden which is full of plants, bugs, flowers etc.

Sounds like you have a fun month planned! Wish we could get to camping so soon! Our first trip will probably be July 4th!

What a fun month you have planned. My youngest just graduated this year but I still love reading what others are doing. I find so many fun projects for my grandblessings! God will sure bless you for your diligence in teaching your child his subjects steeped in truth.
