Summer of success weeek 1 day 4

devotional-The light
Spiritual light we can always feel. It is up to us to reveal it. It is up to us to live up to the divine light within us.
"There is something of divinity within each of you. You have such tremendous potential with that quality as a part of your inherited nature. Every one of you was endowed by your Father in Heaven with a tremendous capacity to do good in the world. Train your minds and your hands that you may be equipped to serve well in the society of which you are a part. Cultivate the art of being kind, of being thoughtful, of being helpful. Refine within you the quality of mercy which comes as a part of the divine attributes you have inherited." Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley

(Moroni 7:16, 18). And now, my brethren, seeing that ye know the light by which ye may judge, which light is the light of Christ, see that ye do not judge wrongfully; for with that same judgment which ye judge ye shall also be judged”

writing-What would life be like without insects?

Insect Body parts<lesson plans from the link on the left
  • How many of you have ever gone outside and seen an insect? What is an insect? Can you tell me what it looks like? I have a large piece of paper here and I need help drawing my insect.
  • Children input ideas as to what the insect looks like. Does it have a head…. Is it square, circle, rectangle, oval? What does the body look like? Does it have a tail? Is it long or short? What does its mouth look like? Does it have any legs? How many? What color should we color it? Does it have eyes? How many? What about a nose? Does it have ears?
  • After the drawing of the insect, we step back and look at it. Wow! Does that look like an insect you have seen before? What name would we give this insect?
  • show pictures of lady bugs

  • Song: Head, thorax ,abdomen(See link insect body parts)
    Sung to tune Head, shoulders, knees and toes

     We found some lady bugs in our daisy's. According to a myth lady bugs can predict the weather. If they fly away there is good weather ahead. If they fall off your hand then bad weather is coming! 3 out of the four lady bugs we found flew away! Hopefully that means good weather! We didn't get into ecosystems so we will do that next week! We also saw an ant hill! We watched Magic school bus episode to learn  more about ants. Lots of learning going on here!
