    Thank you! I’m a teacher (Reading) by formal training so your advice reminds me not to let that kind of boxed approach to teaching get in the way for Science.

    We don’t do any worksheets :), but we are trying to keep a science journal. In this journal he might draw, glue a picture and dictate an answer from the end of the book discussion questions – but too early to tell if it’s worth keeping.

    Thanks again,
    Cindy

    Thank you. So at this point in the program do I draw his attention to the fact that everything human-made starts from the biological and wait for him to label these items (like paper, a wooden block, etc.) accordingly?

    I also got tripped up on how to categorize the sun and fire. He said both were Natural Earth. I know fire is not… going back to Volume I (p.55) Fire is a form of energy…although the idea that fire is a gas persists. This is hard for me to counter.

    Thanks so much for your help!

    How can I best explain that paper is not biological? My son, almost 5, claims it comes from trees. I am not sure how to counter this notion.
