Without DNA, we wouldn't be here. It controls all of our physical characteristics, including eye color, hair color, and even the taste buds on our tongues. In this lesson, we studied the structure of DNA by building a 3-dimensional model which they ate afterwards!
Do you know what DNA stands for? It stands for DeoxyriboNucleic Acid.
During the summer I collected lots of material for our STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics) elective class. I wanted to have a dedicated area for the boys to utilize the material. We live in a townhouse without a basement so I had to think outside of the box. I decided to convert a spare hallway closet into our makers lab. Now they have a place to be creative and everything is in arms reach.
I purchased clear containers to keep the activities separated and organized.
As you all may know recently I found out I am insuline resistance. Which meant that my eating habits had to change drastically. With that being said I had to plan my meals differently. My family on the other hand still wanted their comfort meals. So I decided to start bulk cooking on the weekend. Below are a few of weeks past mommy meals the rest is for the family. This works out much better for me.
Chicken Noodle Soup, Chicken Spaghetti, Cornbread Muffins and Chicken Enchiladas
Chicken Salad with Feta and Sautéed Mushrooms
Strawberry Chicken Salad and Chicken Cobb Salads
My favorite snack time meal.
Meat loaf, Burritos, Lasanga and Breakfast Pizza
Tilapia with Spinach and Kale
