We had a great week in our homeschool. We love to add hands on learning where ever we can.
In History we learned about Abraham, Jacob and Esau, and Joseph. For Geography Raspberry and Blueberry made aged maps of Greece. They labeled the map with information we have been learning about. Once labeled they crinkled it up and dropped it in a pot of tea. I pre-cooked the tea and allowed it to cool while the girls made their maps. They soaked the maps in the tea for 20 minutes. They then removed them and allowed them to dry. To protect them they placed them in a sheet protector before filing it in their history binders. This was such a fun hands on craft for geography.
In science the girls practiced separating compounds.
Strawberry worked a lot in her writing journal this week. This writing journal is amazing, it allows her to practice different pencil directions while also working on her fine motor skills.
In preschool we also learned about direction and the difference between left and right with these fun games.
In sensory play we had fun with water and testing our color mixing
We also did a letter craft this week. Our book of the week was The Foot Book and we did F is for fish for our craft.
