MFW ECC Highlights:Germany–Wk 16-17


MFW HH button

  Welcome to “Weeks 16-17 in Review” in Exploring Countries and Cultures using My Father’s World curriculum!




Geography Focus:

Our weeks learning about Germany were filled with fairy tales and castle stories: Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltskin, Incredible Castles and Knights and the Pied Piper of Hamelin. 

We snacked on Nutella and crackers as we watched The Sound of Music.





Science Focus:

Biome: Lakes, Rivers and Ponds. 

Due to the freezing temperatures and snow, we were unable to go investigate areas of water.  I taped the show Planet Earth: Rivers.


I also found some colorful worksheets from Enchanted Learning.



Family Fun Field Trip with our ECC co-op ~ an indoor waterpark!





Look who just turned 3!


Drop by Kattie’s blog ~ 2 Ladybugs and a Lizard next week.

 It’s been a wonderful holiday break for our family. 

This past week, we were supposed to complete week 16 in ECC and travel to Germany but that did not happen.  My girls and I began the year gently with just a few lessons a day.

I purchased an iPad at Christmas time.  I wanted to share a few
