Educents has an awesome product right now, Actual Size Science and Actual Size Social Studies. This is super fun way to help your kids see the real size of things in comparison to themselves for objects that we would be unlikely to see in real life. I had the opportunity to try out the Actual Size Science with my kids this week and we (by we I mean I) decided that we were going to do the cloud lesson since it has been rainy and overcast here. We get about 2 weeks of cloudy weather a year and I wanted to take advantage of it!
BubbaBear loved being able to play with his chalk in the driveway, and I loved the fact that he was learning while having fun.
Some information from the publisher:
It’s spring! That means asparagus is over flowing in my basket. My kids will only eat it the same way so many times a week. So, I decided to try something new…and for once it worked on the first attempt!
Parmesan Roasted Asparagus
|Prep time||5 minutes|
|Cook time||10 minutes|
|Total time||15 minutes|
|Dietary||Gluten Free, Vegetarian|
- 1 bunch Asparagus (Trimmed)
- 2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
- 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
Don't over cook, if the asparagus blackens on the tips it will be very bitter.
|Preheat the oven to 375 degrees|
|Trim the asparagus off at the snap point|
|Place on a sheet pan, and drizzle with the olive oil and 1/2 of the parmesan cheese, toss to coat.|
|Roast for 5-10 minutes (depending on the thickness of the spears). It is done when they turn a brilliant green.|
|Sprinkle reserved cheese on top and serve hot.|
