Frugal Homeschooler: Discover a Peep's World

So as we venture into this week it is time to have a little fun with our schooling. Now I admit up front that this has nothing to do with the real reasons for Easter so please use it in the spirit given. So first let us take a factory tour to find out how Peeps are born(Click on Factory Tour). We can also do a little Peep math (k-2, 3-5, 6-8). Then on to English class with Peep Haiku. You can visit Fern's Poetry Club to learn the Haiku basics. The onto the wonderful world of Peep Science. Some of these experiments are appropriate to duplicate at home. Even if you don't, they are very enlightening and actually very sound. Then using either homemade or store bought Peeps, do a little crafting. You can even go read about Peep "behavior" in conducting research (ok, totally spoof but totally fun). So after all the Peep education, how do you do on the Peep Quiz? Happy Easter

This cracks me up - and for good reason. We can't buy Peeps. We can't even see them without snickering.

For as long as I can remember, it's been the word we've used for my son's... er, private part.

Great post! Funnier than you probably intended it to be!

Can you imagine if we did this for school today??

One of the cities around here has a "Peep Diorama" contest each year!
