Plant and Animal cells; Grade 6 science: homeschool

Plant and Animal cells; Grade 6 science review  During the third week of homeschool, I learned many fascinating facts with the help with science. I'm using two books for science this year. "Everything you need to know to ace science in one big fat notebook" and "180 days of science for sixth grade". I highly recommend these book/workbook if you are interested in doing more ahead learning. I've actually learned cells in fifth grade, but I understood it better this year while getting homeschooled.  This week, the books focused on animal cells and plant cells. There are many similarities and differences between them. Here are some of the facts about plant and animal cells.  Every living thing is made up of cells. The cell theory made by many scientists claimed that every organism started with one cell, but the cell divided and created even more cells. Plants and Animals are multicellular, which means they are made up of more than one cell.  Animal cells are cir

[Homeschool] Pros and Cons of homeschooling

  [Homeschooling] Pros and Cons of homeschooling Here, I have written a list of pros and cons of homeschooling. I have been working at home for about two weeks now, and I am enjoying it a lot. The first list will have what experts say about homeschooling. The second will have my opinion. What experts say: Pros: 1.    Because individual learning is possible, you can more accurately determine how you have advanced and achieve over the year. 2.     1.  It helps you improve communication skills 3.     2.  You can learn self-directed learning methods 4.     3. You can learn the fun of studying and reading 5.   4.   You can develop your confidence by improving your problem-solving skills.     Cons: 1.     1.  Class content can be boring (not true) 2.     2.  Expensive (You need to buy your own textbooks and work books and supplies. And if you hire a private tutor, it costs more) 3.     3.  Can provide unsystematic education   What I would say about homeschool: P

Old Westbury Gardens; Homeschool field trip

  Old Westbury Gardens; Homeschool field trip Looking out the window, all I saw was trees, trees, and more trees. Then I started to see parts of houses, peeking out between the green blur. Soon, I saw a tall black gate, with gold designs on the side. We finally arrived at Old Westbury Gardens. This year, my parents decided to homeschool me. During the second week of home school, we went on a small “adventure” to Old Westbury Gardens. It didn’t take much long to drive there, and since we had a library card, the tickets were free. Long slim trees and the sights of fancy mansions of Old Westbury, was breathtaking to see. When we arrived, the roads leading to the parking area seemed longer than the actual parking lot. We had an enjoyable time there as we longed to go inside the mansion (sadly, it was under construction). The day was cool and sunny. And due to Covid-19, not a lot of people were there, so it was a perfect day to take pictures. What is Old Westbury?: Old Westbury is a t

About the Paleolithic Era (Old stone age); Human Evolution; Hominids; World History

  The Paleolithic Era (Old stone age); Human Evolution; Hominids; World History The Paleolithic Era (Or the Old stone age) started about 6-7 million years ago. During this time, the first humans called hominids started to develop tools by chipping pebbles, stones, bones, wood, and lots more.   The first Hominids lived in Africa long time ago, changing over time. Here is a list of some well-known types of hominids. Australopithecus: The first hominids were called Australopithecus, meaning “southern ape” and was around 4.4 million years ago. Australopithecus, were nomads, meaning that they traveled frequently to find food without a permanent home. One famous Australopithecus named Lucy; taught many scientist facts they weren’t accurate about.   For example, many archeologists believed that hominids used tools when hominids walked upright. But Lucy proved them wrong by standing upright, but not being able to use tools. The only objects Lucy used was sticks and stones to dig and br
