After School Linky Party (7/29)

Welcome to the After School Linky!

My, oh my, I spy great ideas with my eye.
Here are just some of the great learning ideas shared at last week's party.

Fruity Mummies, An Ancient Egypt Activity by Scattered Yet Together.
(Jesikah brought the science of ancient Egypt to life with this experiment. Her kids used a variety of materials and apple chunks to see which led to the best preservation.)

30 Fun Alphabet Songs for Children at Fun-A-Day!
(Music is such a powerful way to learn. I love this list of alphabet songs. Thanks, Mary Catherine!)

The Addition Box by Caminen Plegats. (Hit Translate.)
(Make addition fun by creating an addition box with using cardboard and tubes. This is SUCH a great way to make math visual.)

August Table Topics by Growing Book by Book.
(Jodie has taken all the work out of making conversation starters for family dinners! Awesome!)

Draw a Life-Sized Whale & More Under the Sea Activities at KC Edventures.
(Get out the measuring tape and some chalk. Kids will be amazed at the size of their favorite whale. This is a great way to help kids understand scale.)

DIY Addition Strip Board and Strip Board Presentations by Living Montessori Now.
(This is such a smart way to reinforce early addition. Watch the video to see how simple it is!)

Science Experiments for Kids: How to Grow Crystals by 123 Homeschool 4 Me.
(Not only are kids learning but the final result of this activity is beautiful. Check out Beth's tutorial!)

Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational
