While talking about maps we observed an orange, then how the peel (once removed) lays flat.

Our notebook pages:
The mini-books came from HomeschoolShare.
Vocabulary looked different for all three boys. Seth had cards, Nathan had larger sheets with definitions, and Christopher has a separate vocabulary notebook where he includes synonyms, antonyms, part of speech and a sentence using the word. (alternate vocabulary notebook page free from NotebookingNook)
Christopher's notebook page (not pictured) also included a short story he had written.
