As a bit of a treat from having just completed some Greek grammar we decided to make
the phases of the moon with Oreos.
The earth was made from an upturned gluten free jammy wheel on which Ronan drew the continents and coloured in the sea. We have some great food colouring felt pens for just such an occasion.
The sun was made from a gluten free custard cream. Then the Oreos were taken apart and the cream cut to size and the phases marked and laid down in the right place in relation to the earth and sun.
Avila got to eat the world and the sun but I didn’t let Ronan and Heleyna eat 2/3rds of a packet of Oreos. I’m not that bad a mother…yet.
Next plan to make DNA sequence out of mini marshmallows and red liquorice straws.
Yes, I know, that’s so horribly home ed of me.
There’s some free science lessons here. I haven’t had a chance to look them over properly yet so can’t vouch for them but you could see what you think.
I do want to have a go at THIS LESSON where the children can build DNA with liquorice straws and marshmallows.
