Home school

I have learned a lot in home school so far.

I spent a day at the zoo this week, and I met some zoologists there and they taught me about animals. I even got to see lions real close up.

I can add really big numbers in math. It is fun. I learned how to carry numbers!

I learned that Venus is hotter then Mercury even though Mercury is closer to the sun. I learned that Earth spins on its axis. I learned about the Prime Meridian and the Equator and that the closer you are to the Equator, the warmer it is. The Equator is a latitude line, and the Prime Meridian is a longitude line. Latitude divide the north north and south, and longitude divide them east and west. Climate is the weather in different places. Places with the same climate are called biomes. Biomes are usually on the same latitude line.

I learned how to play the piano kind of! It was fun.

For my first art project, I painted with water colors about what I did that week. It was lots and lots of fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And lots more!!!! Its lots funner then public school because I have learned a lot and Mama teaches them in fun ways!
