Next stop: the street. He's writing 26 - I was trying to get in a bit of handwriting, does chalk count?
And little sister? She was happy playing in the mulch of one of my potted jalapenos.
After tracing an outline of the ship, we talked about how many people were on the boat (
102 edit: 128, counting the crew) and where or how those people would sleep. I traced a "bed" for him. K'nex in the pants - optional.
We duplicated this approximately 10 times across the street, with hopes of making a 10x10 matrix. Quickly we realized that the Pilgrims' beds were smaller that what we were drawing (or there's another sleeping configuration that we'll investigate later today).
And Sister moved from potted plant to pulling weeds.
