We explored the layers of the Earth with playdough. We also read Planet Earth, Inside Out by Gail Gibbons. It was a little long for the attention span of a 6 year old but was interesting. It would have been better to split into 2 parts. The second half covers volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis, which would make for a good second lesson.

We have been easing back into our routine in preparation for school next month. We read this book and made several machines with LEGOs. It was a lot of fun to look at other LEGO creations and make our own to go with C’s hotel and playground.
