Meandering

September 21, 2015

After a morning of lessons at home, we set off on the metro for homeschool day at the science center.  Beyond the planned chemistry lesson, we talked to a fellow rider about how the brain processes extra or missing letters in texts.  The kid learned another way to use “vocation,” one of his recent vocabulary words.  We talked about how it one might go about figuring out the average speed of the metro train, and the units of measurement that would be most appropriate. We read the informational panel in the building where the science lesson was held, and learned that castle-like armories were built in the wake of the Great Railroad Strike of 1877.  We also identified the Greek Key pattern in the metalwork doors.  Such a nice day, filled with formal and informal learning.
