    Thanks for the list! We love to keep learning throughout the summer as well. I blogged a lot about our previous summers, but this summer we are learning about boats, sound, light, Alexander Bell, and Thomas Edison.

      We did an Alexander Bell study and learned so much! Thomas Edison is going to be in the fall or later, but definitely coming up. Sounds like you’ve got a fun with learning kinkd of summer planned. Enjoy it!
