Wow! January was quite a month! Not the best one ever to track the moon, either, but the children gave it a good try. Thankfully, most were at least able to get a look at that spectacular full moon earlier in the month. This project will soon conclude, as the new moon is upon us!
We are currently studying Chapter 8, The Atmosphere: its layers, air pressure, energy, heat, and winds. Our next project will be when we tackle environmental issues in Chapter 13, Land, Air and Water Resources.
I look forward to meeting with many of you later this month at conferences. Always feel free to contact me, if there are any comments, questions, or concerns.
