1st Grade, Rome to Reformation Week 29: South American Tribes, Jupiter, last supper, the cross, resurrection and ascension


We memorized Philippians 2:5-11 and did some review of verses 

We continued reading the book of 1 John.

For Lil Sis, we read about the last supper, the cross, resurrection and ascension

This isn't the first time we coincide so beautifully with the passion week. This week we prepare for Good Friday and Easter and Lil Sis was reading all about it!

We were also reading about Leonardo Da Vinci, so this is a great time do the "Last Supper" craft.

And we made the resurrection cookies. Last time we made these was three years back!
These are the ingredients and this time all took turns to read (besides Baby Sis of course)

The last step was the "seal" the tomb. The kids said "But we could take off the tape!" So I told them "Just as we think as if the tape could stop us from opening the oven, as if the stone can stop Jesus from resurrecting!!"

The tomb is empty!!


We learnt about the South American tribes before the Spanish invaded the land.

We also made maps of Magellan and Verspucci.

When we talked about the gods of the tribes and how they need to "keep the god alive" by sacrificing human blood, we were reminded how wonderful God wants us as a living sacrifice and He is the one who keeps US alive.

We made Aztec pots.

The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English.

Lil Sis worked on her bible story reading  and bible notebook. 

The older two did a review for 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese and Lil Sis did practice on bopomofo

We learnt two more Latin words "facio" and "plico" this week. 
I used puzzlemaker to make the crossword puzzle for review. The kids really like this.

We continued to practice Math. 

We learnt about Jupiter and there were so many interesting information about it.

Because we are cutting down screen time, we did the newspaper by writing instead of on the computer.

Big Bro's

Lil Sis did a page from learningpage.


We did replicas of the Mona Lisa

And we learnt to paint with soft edges.
