Science Project- Frog Dissection Workshop

Marcus had the opportunity to attend a Frog Dissection Workshop yesterday. He is homeschooled through an Independent Study Program. Each student had to give a presentation on a body part. He chose the gallbladder. He had to give a one to two minute presentation and provide a diagram. We had him utilize the internet and books for references. He created his diagrams, copied them to the computer and printed them. On Sunday, he laid out his pictures, heading and notes, on the posterboard. I recommend using color posterboard or matting. I gives it that extra punch. Those of you who are scrapbookers know what I'm talking about.

The instructor brought with her a male and female American Bullfrog. This was the first time I saw a live frog! Marcus was my personal guide. I have to say this is an opportunity homeschool and traditional students should have. Pictures do not do justice. I now have a true appreciate for the American Bullfrog.

P.S. I left before the dissections started…

Rona's Favorite WAHM Online Websites

Advertising Moms
I really enjoy Advertising Moms. They have a very active message board. There's 2 different discussion topics per day. I've learned great business tools and tips. You get meet other WAHM's.

Advertising Moms website offers graphic and web design. I had my Country Bunny Bath & Body button designed by them. It was very affordable, came with directions and it was just what I wanted. Tara Cooke was easy to work with. She sent me a proof for final approval. I actually noticed that I forgot important information. She quickly fixed it and emailed me the changes. What a great way to do business, without leaving the home!

I definitely recommend this online WAHM network group. Please feel free to visit this website.
