First Friday: Student Art Show
BEST students have amazing talent. During the month of December, students created beautiful wearable jewelry and painted landscape watercolor pictures. In February, they designed unique fruit and animal silhouettes, and drew self-portraits. On March 6, students, parents, and friends are invited to BEST homeschool Art Show to view items.
Science Friday: Insects
Have you ever wondered about the parts of an insect? Have you ever wanted to create your own insect? Our next Science Friday will cover both of these topics and in the end, you will have an insect to take home. After learning about insects and their body parts, the students will design and then build their own insect, using common household parts. Bring your creativity and your hunger for knowledge, and you will leave full and buggy.
