School Projects

I thought I would update you all on a couple of projects that the kids have just completed.

I am not sure if any of you have ever heard about Homeschool Share. I found this on the TOS website and I have fallen madly in love with this site. They offer free unit studies, lapbooks and more! Since the kids have been studying about insects this month during nature, we decided to complete our very first lapbook! It turned out great!

We learned all about ants and I must tell you there is some really interesting facts about ants that I will not soon forget! Things that I never knew were possible!It turned out really neat and the kids want to do one next week on spiders!

We have also been studying about Israel during our geography time. We learned about an ancient art that they do called paper cutting. They hang these elaborate pieces of art in their houses to help them remember to always pray towards Jerusalem!

They really had a great time doing this project. We are learning so much using the Charlotte Mason style of teaching. I was always worried about not learning enough, but the kids are gaining a world of knowledge that only God could supply them through this method of teaching!
