Classical Conversations Cycle 1 Science

My computer is dying a slow and painful death, which has thrown a great big kink into my plans to have a more finalized list out to you by the end of June. (I am now operating Windows via a CD-ROM because it no longer functions from the hard drive... Blogger scheduler is the only reason these posts have continued over the past week or two...) I plan to update this list as time permits (after we either reinstall Windows or get a new computer) but wanted to go ahead and get the preliminary list out for those who are already planning for next year.  

Note that Pinterest has tons of ideas, way beyond what I have listed here and there's a picture to go with each one.  My only problem with Pinterest is that there is too much for me to handle! Pinterest totally wigs me out!!! (But some people think the same thing of my lists o' links...) Just wait till I reveal how little I actually plan to use.

  1. Hi Brandy, I created a folder for your emails in my personal email account. The last email I got was on the Tin Whistle but I didn't get this one for Science (which I was so anxiously waiting for). Thank you so much for ALL that you do. I can see how it's so easy to get overwhelmed.
