MFW Exploration to 1850 WEEK 27: War of 1812, Napoleon, echinoderms, sponges, worms

Bible
This week we went on to James Chapter 4 and memorized 4:1-4

History
We learnt about the war of 1812 and the rest of the Napoleon's stories.
We also learnt about Francis Scott Key and the Star-Spangled Banner.


This is for the 2nd Grader.














Big Sis has been reading me the American Girls' stories. This week we were reading on Caroline and we realized it coincided with the 1812 war! It was really interesting for both of us.


We continued on William Carey. And the kids were getting a bit worried for him. =)

Language
We continued with Spelling power and Rod and Staff.


Science
This week we learnt about 
echinoderms, sponges, and worms


Art
We are using Artistic Pursuits K-3 (Book 2) this year.

But for this week, we took a break from the book, and did a pencil shading drawing instead, of the Flag. We learnt the step by step instructions here.

This was supposed to be a monkey

She tough it better as a lamb. =)
Of course, it was imperative to learn to draw hearts.














MFW Exploration to 1850 WEEK 26: Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark, Myriapods, mollusks, cnidarians

Bible
This week was revision week. We revised chapters 1-3 and the older kids did Boy Have I Got Problems for Chapter Three. Since we are memorizing from NLT, I realized that by letting them do "Boy" AFTER we are done with memorization is less confusing.

We have been spending a lot of time on this and I realized it was so worth it!

History
We learnt about the Louisiana Purchase and Lewis and Clark.




We  researched on Thomas Jefferson.




It was fun doing the compass activity with the kids.




We continued on William Carey. And the kids were getting a bit worried for him. =)

Language
We continued with Spelling power and Rod and Staff.


Science
This week we learnt about 
myriapods, mollusks, and cnidarians.
Big Sis took out her shell collection and we had a good look at them.






Art
We are using Artistic Pursuits K-3 (Book 2) this year.

For art, we did masking tape over watercolors. It was real fun!
