Welcome to “Weeks 23 –24 in Review” in Exploring Countries and Cultures using My Father’s World !
Welcome to our studies of India !
- We prayed for the Indian culture
- Learned about the people of India, their land and food
- We learned about the Taj Mahal
- Our science biome: Mountains and it’s layers
- We started to build a volcano in co-op
- Reading through the book of Matthew 19-20
As we read through the POE lesson on Mountains, the girls and I created the different layers on our white board. We discussed what animals might live in each layer depending on the continent.
The girls enjoyed building their mountains.
Their completed Mountain project.
Our science experiment: How can frozen water crack rocks? When water freezes, the water molecules spread apart. The water increases in volume, pushes the rock, which causes the rock to split. Our OJ jug was filled with water, frozen for a day ……… and it split !
We watched one of my all time favorite childhood videos: Rikki Tikki Tavi
In ECC co-op, the kids made yummy … Mango Lassi drinks.
In co-op, the kids learned how the Indian culture cut and paint tiles for buildings in great detail. The kids decorated tiles (paper) with designs, glazed them with glitter glue, and placed them on cardstock paper.
Kattie at 2 Ladybugs and a Lizard will be hosting next week’s linky!
