This week was called Job a Week for a reason. I want my son to learn about all different types of professions. We are doing a lesson each day on a different type of profession. I’m still staying with our block schedule with this too.
So Monday on our block schedule is Science and Social Studies . The lesson is all about being a doctor. I found some great forms online for dramatic play. He also has to fill out an application each day. I just created something on my own for this but I got the inspiration from Melanie Wilson at psychowith6.com. She posted it on her Facebook page Homeschool Sanity. It is from fivejs.com I’ll post all of the printable’s at the bottom of the post.
We used some 1950’s Public Service Announcements about Health. He was extremely amused by these. I also let him watch a video of Bill Nye the Science Guy. It was about the lungs. We called it a Webinar. He knows all about Webinar’s because mamma attends them all the time. So that was fun to use as a teaching source.
We set his desk up with a laptop and his forms he had to review each patient’s file before he went in the room with them. Then in the room he did the exam and filled out the paperwork for them. If they needed it he would write them a prescription. His last patient was mom. He was able to look at my MRI Scan’s. I have them on a DVD so that was fun to let him run through it and tell me what he thought we needed to do. It was also great because we were able to talk about his feelings about what happened to mom.
Join us over on Facebook we have a wonderful group of homeschoolers, Homeschoolscopes.
