Fun Filled Weekly Workboxes

We're still working away on a Space School here, but we've also added a Nim's Island study to our plate. So this week the boys will find more then just space goodies awaiting them. They are pretty big fans of Nim so I'm pretty sure they'll be delighted to find that we'll be doing fun things based out of "her" book too. All though, I am eagerly awaiting a package from the mainland, so we may spend lots of time sitting by the mailbox waiting on our Postie who doesn't often come until quite late in the afternoon! Hopefully this week they'll find:

  • Magic School Bus Space Video (it finally came from the library!)
  • Supplies for making their own rain gauges, weather veins, and barometers
  • A few moon science experiments
  • Grocery Store Math supplies (felt food and fake coins, I've got some big plans for this)
  • The Cabin Faced West (as we continue learning about George Washington)
  • Space Sticker book & more of Lunar Jim as we didn't finish these up yet
  • Planet Craft (we're all excited to finally have our supplies for this one!)
  • Moon Sand, we made play-do instead last week
  • Celebrating Rembrant's Birthday (15th) with an art project
  • Making a salt-dough map of Nim's Island based on a paper map we have
I may also slip in passes for an afternoon at the movies. There's one out that the boys are itching to see and it's much more fun to go during normal school hours. We're also pretty psyched to make the planet craft now that we FINALLY made it out to the craft store for our supplies.

What about you, what have you got planned for your Fun Filled Weekly Workboxes this week? Blog about it, and then come back and link up here! If you don't have a blog and want to join the fun just leave a comment and tell us about your workboxes.
