Hands-on Projects

This year we're using My Father's World again and we will be studying, Rome through the Reformation for history. We are also doing human anatomy and astronomy for science. We've done quite a few fun hands-on projects already this year.

All the kids with their brain caps and mosaic projects.

Kassidy was learning about the sun this week and Kaylee decided she wanted to do the science projects too. They had fun marking their sun dials all day.

 All the kids made wax tablets to simulate how the Roman's wrote with tablets. Karolyn covered hers with duct tape.

 Kolsen shows off the parts of the Bible we made with match boxes.

Learning about the bones is way more fun when you can practice on your brother!

I love how My Father's World has all the kids learning the same things at the same time. They all learn so much together and can still work at their own levels. We've put in five weeks of school between all our travels for vacation and other activities. It's been a great year so far and I can't wait to see how the kids grow throughout the year.
