We are a part of a homeschooling co-op and we LOVE it!  There are 5 families and we all get along fabulously.  We focus on History, Science, Art, Creative Writing and Crafts.

Recently, for Science, one of the moms did volcanoes, earthquakes, and tornadoes as the lesson one day.  T-Man couldn't have been happier.  He built his own volcano to set off for the lesson.  We used salt dough and formed it around a small plastic cup.  He set it in the sun to dry for a day.  After it was mostly dry, he painted it.  He did the painting all by himself and he did a great job!  

I love the snow he put on the top.  The alligator is in the water along with the elephant.  He put a couple rocks in there too.  I love how much thought he put in to it.


The best part about it was he had fun doing it.  He was self-motivated and excited to finish this project.  This makes a homeschooling mama very happy!  :)
