History: We traveled to California, Minnesota, and Oregon this week. Our travels took us down the Santa Fe, Oregon, and California Trails with the early pioneers. The girls began their study on the life of Abraham Lincoln.
Our favorite books this week:
Bible: Jesus as the Servant – Matthew 20:28 .. “… the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” God sent His Son, Jesus, to earth to serve the lost and sinful. He was obedient to God and carried out His Will here on Earth – to serve, suffer and die for the sins of all mankind for all time!
Other Bible references: Isaiah 52 – 53, Phi. 2: 6-11 & John 13: 1-17
Dad’s Read Alouds this week:
Daddy is now in charge of reading the girls their ‘Chapter Books’ during the evening. This has been a wonderful change in our home. The girls enjoy hearing another voice besides mine. I also reserve a variety of books on CD for the girls to listen too when the lights go out at bedtime.
Science: Our experiments were on solids, liquids and gases, making a fizz, and how materials change – melting candles, boiling water, rust on a nail, etc.
MFW Adventures science books are a lot of fun because they have simple experiments for young children.
Our resources this year:
Make a gas
We made carbon dioxide gas that filled a balloon.
Make Gas Fizz
Did you know why pop has bubbles in it? Because the factory pumps gas bubbles into it.
The girls dropped raisins in the pop and they sink to the bottom. The gas bubbles stick to the raisins and they float to the top – then sink again.
Do you know why there are holes in a piece of cake or cupcake? They are made by baking soda in the cake mixture. The baking soda makes the bubbles when the mixture gets hot in the oven. This makes the cake rise.
Art and Crafts this week: This is an idol that the people chose to worship instead of God. A BEE visor I made with my Papa.
