Alyssa recently started a new Science curriculum called Introductory Science from Science Shepherd. This user-friendly curriculum takes very little time to complete each day.
One of the first activities offered after watching videos and completing a quick worksheet about Creation was to make a model of her favorite animal. The lesson was about how God can create anything. He does so by just speaking the words, but people can't do that. It further explains that we can use clay to make things.
We purchased some Crayola Model Magic at Hobby Lobby with a 50% off coupon and a gift card. The booklet inside the box gave helpful tips and suggestions for creations.
Next, she watched an arts and crafts video from the sixth volume of Mike's Inspiration Station explaining how to Sculpt a Cute Dog. She adores all animals, but her two favorite animals are dogs and cats.
She made this adorable dog and also made a black and white cat with blue eyes sleeping on its belly. What a fun hands-on Art activity! I love it when we can integrate Art into Science . . . or any other subject for that matter.
