My kids are very curious about everything.  That is a really good thing.  So for the TOS Crew we were able to choose which study we wanted to do.  That was VERY difficult.  We ended up putting the titles in a hat and had to draw one.  We just could not pick what we wanted.  The title we choose was.....

It's no secret we love unit studies.  Having one topic with every subject included makes it so easy to teach a wide age range.  It is also a "sneeky" way to get your kids excited about a subject.  If I were to ask my kids HEY do you want to learn about quicksand? I would of been met with all kinds of sighs and walls!!  I even dressed up as Professor Ana Lyze...sorry guys no pictures of that one...LOL!  It was such a fun week of learning.

Our daughters have learning disabilities and have trouble retaining information taught to them.  But when you make it fun and very hands on they remember SO much.  This series is JUST that.  Who would of thought our kids would be learning about Physics and remembering it!!  They were even excited about writing.  I can not tell you how much of a struggle it is to get them to do so.  Maybe it's because it wasn't "Mommy" telling them to it was "Professor Ana Lyze".  I need to come up with a character for the rest of the subjects.  LOL!!

I love edible quicksand.  You will just have to go on over to The Schoolhouse Store and purchase this study to find out about that.  It is ok to eat sand!!  I'm going to purchase the rest of the titles and use with our homeschool co op group!!  Yes Professor Ana Lyze will be there.  **Wink wink**

As a part of the TOS Crew I received this study free in exchange for my honest review.
