Monday was our history lesson about the Revolutionary War. The kids started making little timelines since there are too many events to fit on our wall timeline. After the lesson I read a portion of The Washington Hypothesis to them that went along with what we learned about. I'll do the same next week!
Tuesday we learned about Prometheus and Pandora in literature. We made little paper boxes and placed papers with troubles inside. My kids think it's great fun to tell everyone "don't open Pandora's box!"
It was also our chemistry celebration. We had a fun lesson and did four different activities to learn about chemical reactions. Elephant toothpaste was everyone's favorite.
Thursday was geography and we began studying the lithosphere of North America. We learned about valleys -- v-shaped, u-shaped, and river plain valleys. The children ended by digging valleys in the dirt, but this didn't last long because it was an extremely cold day here (compared to what the weather has been anyway)!
Friday was an art lesson and we learned about the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo. Everyone wanted to try copying his work. That was a lot of fun!
See you next week!
