The Story of Creation: Day 3

And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry [land] appear: and it was so. And God called the dry [land] Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that [it was] good.  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, [and] the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed [is] in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.   And the earth brought forth grass, [and] herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed [was] in itself, after his kind: and God saw that [it was] good. And the evening and the morning were the third day. - Genesis 1:9-13 KJV

The girls used the montessori land form cards found here.  Arin used these cards for memory and Ella used them for matching. 

The girls also planted their grapefruit tree.  Remember when the girls were juicing all of our grapefruit?  Inside of one of the pieces of fruit, we found a seed that had already started sprouting.  We planted it in a pot with our blueberry bush.  It has grown enough that it was time to transplant it into its own pot, so that was the perfect activity to go along with this day's lesson.
(I had taken the seed picture with my phone, which is why the quality is so terrible)

The girls also used the "Life Cycle of an Apple" cards, found here.

The girls also completed their Day 3 coloring page.
