The Giant Squid

I am not sure how or why Princess is so interested in Giant Squids, but she is.
If you have an extra moment today check out my friend Wendy's
blog and see her Giant Squid project. I begged her to start a blog because
I needed to see her great ideas.Here is where she first talked about it,
and here are the pictures!
Princess and I are so excited to try this...we may not be able to wait until our school year
starts as I had planned.Wendy, I just have to say thank you for sharing your awesome idea(s)!
You are one of the many fellow homeschoolers who have helped make our experience
a richer and much more fun experience!

Oh my, that brings back memories!! Our living room was always getting turned into an ocean,rainforest,space or dinosaur land lol. Your door pictures also bring back memories, its so much fun to homeschool young kids!

What a great idea! We really need to rethink our meet-up location to somewhere down the shore where the kids can take part in some sort of sea life activity!

Kate, you are so lucky to know such a creative person IRL. The project looks fantastic. I look forward to reading more from Wendy. Electic homeschooling seems to fit our style best. I'm sure your Giant Squid will be fabulous. I'll have to think if I've ever read any good books with Squids.

LWO- I couldn't agree more, although I do get a bit jealous of all the cool stuff you get to do with O that P is not ready for.
Angela- Sounds good to me!!

Nina- LOL, I have never met Wendy in person, but rather on a yahoo
Like so many of you, I do consider her a friend! :-)

Hi! I found myself on your site today and loved the link for the ginat squid. We did it ourselves today but we decided to make a colossal squid. We had so much fun and can't believe just how big it really is. Great project! Thanks for the link! Our squid can be seen here

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
