Women in Science Themed Morning Basket

March is Women’s History Month. Last year for our March Morning Basket we did a Girl Power – Women in History theme. This year I thought it would be fun to take one of Emily’s top interests and dive deeper into that. She loves all fields of studies within science. I thought exploring women in science that paved the way before her would be a great morning basket topic for us. So, Our March Morning Basket is women in science and science themed.

The four main catergories of things that we include in our morning basket each month are read alouds, madlibs and/or trivia, hands-on activities, and games. The main reason we include these are because they are Emily’s favorite things and I find I like to start our day by connecting and filling her love tank.

Each morning (or whatever time we start our homeschool day) she enjoys the hands-on activities while I read aloud, then we do either a mad lib or some trivia, and we finish our morning basket time by playing a game together. What’s in this basket might look like a lot but chipping away at it every day for a month normally ensures we will get to enjoy it all.

Would like to see our morning basket in action and see how we have made it worked for us over the years? Then check out our Join Us For Morning Time series on our YouTube channel.

    Hi, Jessica. Big fan of your YouTube channel and have been watching for a while now. I saw in this video, you mentions your mini “Who was” lessons. Do you have them available for purchase? Would love to do an entire theme next school year on who was for my kiddos. Thanks!
