Ideas for Studying in October
October is sort of an odd month, isn’t it?
A few fleeting warm days and then suddenly chilly. Hurricane season in some areas. A time to study weather.
Here in California, huge flocks of birds are flying to the comparative safety of the San Francisco Bay for the winter. They darken the sky at times.
A dry time. A time to teach children about fire safety inside the home and outside as well.
A spooky time of year, as the winds come and scrape tree limbs against the house.
A time to visit a historic ghost town.
A great month to read Frankenstein and learn about chemistry with this Frankenstein-inspired “Spark of Life” science project and more!
I had a chance to meet Ray Bradbury, a most charming and delightful man. He is best known for The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenheit 451, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and The Illustrated Man.
The last month for high school seniors to take SAT Tests. Scary thought.
A time to think about all the events set in motion when Columbus bumped into the American continent on his way to Asia.
A time to learn about nuclear science!
A time, this year, to teach children used to prosperity, what it means to “tighten your belts,” deciding what must now be considered a luxury. Teach them to budget.
