Garfield (the Cat, Not the President)

garfieldAccording to my special days calendar, June 19 is Garfield’s (the cat, not the president) 35th birthday!  We will be having fun learning with our favorite cat as part of our homeschooling summer school subject of the day.

I’ll be combining math, health, science, and life skills as the kids add up the calories contained in our crock pot lasagna kitchen project, and figure how much Wii Just Dance it will take to burn those calories.

We checked these out from the library for hilarious reading.
