Since posting my plan but a few minutes ago, I have gone to the provincial education site to find the outcomes for science. Well, actually, I headed over to Roots and Wings before that and was reminded that if my son were in a Montessori school, they would be covering the provincial objectives by being given the outcomes as a way to measure progress through them. But anyhow, I was looking at the science outcomes and was reminded that one of the grade 9 science units is on space exploration. Woot! That could be super interesting. We often have things come our way about getting to Mars and discuss that, so it would be a great topic.
Okay, I just had to share. ;)
