Exploration to 1850 WEEK 2: Dutch, Spanish Explorations

Bible


We began the memorization of James! This week we did James 1:1-4.

Daddy came on board with us and we revised the verses everyday at Family Bible Time after dinner. It was really good!

History

We learnt about the Dutch Revolt, Spanish exploration of South America, and Mary, Queen of Scots

For my middle-schooler, he had to do more notebook pages (and more Math), while others did oral narrations. He also read more about Sir Walter Raleigh.
Got this globe at the homeschool conference. Thank you, Alpha Omega! And we used it as we read about history.

Big Sis and Lil Sis really enjoyed "American Pioneers and Patriots". We also read the North American Indians.

We made shortbread and had tea!
This recipe, though extremely vague for a recipe, is delicious!



We read this interesting story while talking about Netherlands.

Language
We started with Rod and Staff English this week. We are using English 2,4,6. This is Lil Sis doing the book first time. She needed more help with the reading but she is doing really good!!

We also started with Mandarin Chinese this week.

Science
We learnt about vascular plants and looked for them.




We talked about non-vascular plants and how they soak up water like a napkin.

Instead of Pokemon Go (no, we are not into that), we went in search of the different plants on our nature walk in this city.
We were observing moss
We found some non-vascular plants

Vascular gymnosperm

Vascular angiosperm


Art
We are using Artistic Pursuits K-3 (Book 2) this year.
For the first project, we painted buildings in our neighborhood like Cimabue(Chee mah Boo eh)
