We read about John Calvin and John Knox. I decided to forego Anne Askew and the Latimer stories because I don't think the kids could take it.
We learnt about the spread of Reformation and Counter Reformation, Copernicus and Galileo, and Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.
The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English.
Lil Sis continued to practice reading
The older two did a review for 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese and Lil Sis did practice on bopomofo
We continued to practice Math.
We learnt about the Kuiper Belt and Pluto
We talked about the Pluto debate and I asked the kids to make their own stand by writing about it.
We watched little videos of Pluto. It was so cool that we got more information now that New Horizons had the fly by last year.
We talked about Raphael and looked at his drawing of Sistine Madonna. It was very interesting to see that the little angels at the bottom of the artwork were more famous than the art itself. =)
Then we drew cherubs.
