After a week off visiting with Grandma, the girls are back into the fun of Adventures with My Father’s World!
This week’s summary: Jesus the Giver of Living Water, The Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, and the Revolutionary War.
Bible: The memory verse is from John 7:37. .. “if anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.”
Science: The girls did various projects with water. They put a tsp of water on various items (coffee filter, tracing paper, plastic, wash cloth) to determine absorption. They learned that items with holes/pores absorbed more liquid.
Then we lined an empty jar with a napkin, tissue, wash cloth and topped it with a marble. It took just one tsp of water on the tissue for the marble to sink. The wash cloth actually raised up as it absorbed the water!
Then we lined a shallow dish with coffee filter strips, colored each with a large dot using a marker, then dropped on a tsp or two of water. The marker colors separated … somewhat… we could see the red separate to orange and yellow shades. We reviewed the color wheel too.
History: We read the The Fourth of July Story and Red, White and Blue. Both are great books with nice illustrations. I liked these two books and our Book Basket items for my girls age group.
Book Basket favorites:
We added to our Timeline: Declaration of Independence and US becomes a country – 1776.
Read about Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, The Revolutionary War, Liberty Bell, Paul Revere, the 13 Colonies and the original American Flag. … wow was that a lot of history this week! It was a great learning experience for our family too.
Now for more fun!
Our Adventures co-op kids made Hasty Pudding and a Quill Pen and Berry Ink.
A few smiles for more Hasty Pudding… a little doctored-up with honey!
