Make your own life map
Yesterday Nancy found another great idea: a life map. I would love if each of you would do this with your children. Here's a great little document to downlnoad that shows what a life map might be like and how to make your own. It's a nice little activity that really helps teach kids of about health and career. I also learned a while back that the website "Excellent Science" is holding its yearlong free services promotion.
There's also a neat web site called https://mysteryscience.com/. This site is particularly good if you want to ease into inquiry-based hands on science. If anyone is using it or starts using it, please let me know about your experience.
Education's Finest Moment
Weather kids take a Mathematical, Social, or Scientific, or Bible-oriented approach to solving them, these mysteries are gripping. Little upsets to our understanding of the universal order of things open a door to education's greatest moments since Anselm of Canterbury, who in the year 1077 asked if he could prove the existence of God through pure reasoning said, Ad magnum et delectabile quiddam me subito perduxit haec mea meditatio! "Suddenly my meditation brought me to a great and interesting point!" I like the "suddenly". The work he penned, Fides Quaerens Intellectum, has amazed and delighted scholars of the Christian faith for nearly a millennium. To upset your apple card and open the door to your own great discovery try solving some of these mysteries. Your aha moment is waiting for you.
