    What's that bird?-astronomy and insects facts

    How do you go over these facts? As far as I can see, they were not listed in the curriculum guide (just a general instruction on page 4 on What's that bird?' TM). Do you just go over these facts before each lesson? During recitation? Do you do quizzes?. Also are there any pdfs available for these facts or we just make our own?

    Thanks!

    I just assumed it meant the facts that are covered in Recitation. (?)

      Are you talking about the facts they learn for each lesson?

      If you are, what we do is that when i check their work, I also check what is on the quizzes from that lesson and have them highlight it in their books. Then they study the highlighted material all the way along. They get into the habit of when their quizzes are scheduled (usually every two lessons) so they pick up pretty quickly how often they need to review. I think the Recitations in the Curriculum Guides also contain questions from their science work to help them review (we have not started school yet so I am going off memory from June...does not hold up that long!)

      Hope that helps - but feel free to clarify if I misread your question!

        That's a good idea Sarah!

        I was mostly interested in how to review the 4 points listed under the 'Model Lesson Plan' (page 4-teacher's guide). It says to review Astronomy(stars, planets with facts, constellations) and Insects (order, scientific and common names, kind of metamorphosis, traits, etc.) besides the new information on birds. I was wondering if there was some type of a .pdf available with just this information? or how to go about it? I guess I need to get the books from last year and make my own lists? thanks!

          Hello.

          If you look above the "Model Lesson Plan" to the "Goals," it tells you to use the Astronomy Final Exam and the Insects Final Exam to do this review. Maybe we need to move that information down to the "Model Lesson Plan" for clarity.
