I respectfully ask that you not pin pictures of my children to Pinterest. Thank you!
Things that were scheduled as usual:
|Tenor's reading worksheet on his hero... he chose his dad. :)|
Soprano started a new writing curriculum called Creative Writing Made Easy by New Millenium Girl Books. I got it during a currclick sale, and it is a perfect fit for her... horses and princesses. I think it will be a gentle introduction to creative writing.
Health: They did a worksheet on what a healthy lifestyle is.
Bible: We read in Genesis about the post- flood, Noah's descendants, and the Tower of Babel. We also began working on memorizing the books of the Old Testament. As we read through Genesis 10, we followed along with this Table of Nations. We mapped out the migration of Noah's sons and descendants.

Trying with magnifying lenses:
We also continued reading Dinosaurs of Eden and talked about dinosaurs after the flood. The kids made a mini wheel book about potential reasons for dinosaur extinction (What Happened to the Dinosaurs Wheel Book). They also had fun looking up dinosaur heights in our book basket books to fill out the Dinosaur Graph.)
History: They did a notebooking page about Noah (printable found here) and added the Tower of Babel to their timelines. We started reading about the Sumerian civilization which was one of the first. They settled in Mesopotamia, in the fertile crescent.
They also developed a system of writing using wedge-shaped characters. We went to this site to get our cuneiform monograms.
Using their cuneiform monograms, they wrote them out on "clay" tablets (sugar cookie dough.)
Music: We finished up listening to the biography of Vivaldi. They wrote additional info from the lesson on a notebooking sheet for our portfolios.
Art: More practice with ellipses.
