History / Science:
We are closing in on our year traveling the 50 states.
This week we traveled to Montana, Washington, Idaho and Wyoming. Our favorite things in these states: evergreens, potatoes, Mount St. Helens and cowboys. The girls (and mom) learned about inventions like the McCormick’s reaper, the sewing machine and the telephone.
Speaking of Mount St. Helens – check out this VOLCANO making kit !
Our favorite book basket books:
Jesus the Word: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1.
Well that’s a difficult concept to understand on this side of Heaven. Our discussions this week were on how we can see the creativity of God by just looking at nature and how God shares His thoughts, promises and provisions through His Living Word.
Focus verses this week: John 1: 1-4 and Ephesians 4:29
Science: Our Favorite Apple
Our travels this week took us to Washington state.. the land of apples. We were to conduct and experiment to see what kind of apple our family likes best. The girls did this study last fall for our OHC Nature Study … check out the details here!
