Interactive Science Notebook for Kindergartners

This year, Dragonfly (my self-appointed "Science Girl") had a list of requests for me of animals that she'd like to study.  I love her enthusiasm and have created this science "curriculum" accordingly.  The non-science themes are centered around holidays and when we'll be taking our school breaks (every break in the line is a week or more off).

{Letter}  (Theme)  Activity
{  } apples (our BTS tradition)- Montessori world map book
{G} gorilla (monkeys and apes)- monkey and ape sort
