Science Sunday: The Canine family



So I had this great idea to get us back into the swing of things and do some geography and science and I was going to do a lesson on grinding teeth and the manatee, and compare it to dogs.  I presented it to the kids, and they said “No Mom, we want to read more about dogs since we’re taking care of Aunt Tara’s dog.”

Ummmm…….  Okay……  Only problem is we already did the project I had planned related to that, so we just worked on notebooking for this week.  It’s not exciting, but they enjoyed it and worked hard.

Which is a good thing.


Can you see the comparison between this dog and a wolf?  My kids did.  They figured out wolves and miniature schnauzers both have multiple babies, they both eat meat and have the same teeth.


Wolves are different because they don’t dig, and we do not have wolves as pets.


It was a fun week.


Let’s see what others did this week:

Each week I’m spotlighting a few posts that were shared previously.  Many posts get linked up later in the week and they don’t always get as many clicks as they deserve, so I’m trying to spotlight a few every week.


Creekside Learning shared their Frog and Toad study, literature and science at the same time?  Yes please.

Frugal Fun for Boys shared her snowshoes experiment from Apologia Land Animals.  I was excited to realize someone else is doing land animals, and thinks of experiments as she’s teaching the lesson……..


The Olympics may be past, but Enchanted Homeschooling Mom has a great experiment with friction, that is easy to do with stuff you probably have at home.
