Back to normal activities this week after Spring Break. Let’s see what Ethan was up to this week.

March 31

April 1

We read Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea before Ethan went to bed. We want to finish this before moving onto The Hobbit but it’s taking a little longer than expected. An interesting story, though.

We finished the night reading Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. We’re finally on Part II!

April 3

Nature school today. This is what they did, according to Ethan’s teacher, Scott:

Our first day back together was rainy, but we made the most of it! We started by deciding to take a walk down to Lynn river in search of Licorice fern root. I talked about the rhizomous growth pattern of the fern and how to harvest it in a way so as to keep as much of it growing as possible. Also, we talked of the fact that the spot we harvested from was a good one to choose because of the abundant amount of the fern in the area.

After washing up the roots, we walked back up to the tarp shelter that we had constructed and re-joined Blake’s group. Here, we had lunch and started up the stove. Blake’s group helped by adding more ingredients.

While sipping tea, we played a game of “Catch the poacher” with Blake’s group, then spent the rest of the day playing on a big tree stump!

April 4

We’re more than halfway through Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. It’s a challenging book to read as some of the scientific terms and other words are difficult to pronounce. Anyway, it’s fun!

Ethan spent most of this day making videos so please see this one about beryllium.
