One thing that has been very beneficial about moving to Maryland is how much there is to do for homeschoolers. From classes at the Community College, to the Museums, the Gardens and Zoos, Libraries and Amusement Parks. My Beloveds learned all about Pi at the Maryland Science Center. The activities included learning about the Pizza Pie, to a Pie eating contest that both Big A and Z Man both participated in. We brought home the yummy apple pies from Dangerously Delicious Pies. They also helped build the pi equation up the stairs.
Our children participate in a Homeschool Co-op that has two classes for 3 age groups: 4-6, 7-9, & 10+. Lil A who is in the 4-6 Dinosaur class was able to extend her learning at the marvelous Dinosaur exhibit at the museum. A new friend of mine was able to meet us there with her three children.
The very best part about this Museum is it's location at the Baltimore Inner Harbor. I have enjoyed going to the Baltimore Inner Harbor ever since I was a little girl and my dad would take me there to see the ships and eat Italian Ice. The food court was closed for remodeling, so we did not visit the same Italian Ice shop but we did partake in Rita's while taking a stroll with our friends. There really is so much to do at the Inner Harbor and I am sure I will posting about more adventures there real soon.
A great way to extend ones learning about Pi is reading this book:
|Although we came for Pi we spent more time in the dinosaur area which was perfect|
since Lil A just learned about dinosaurs in her 8 week session at the Co-op.
|We were able to meet up with some friends in the background and enjoy|
