We finished up week 28 last week, but I’m just now posting our review. Here’s how the week went…
Bible – Our question this week was ‘How did Noah get two of every sea animal on the ark’? We read Genesis 6:20, 6:17, :15, and 7:22 to find the answer.
English – This week Caleb worked on capitalization…all sorts of capitalization rules.
Math – Caleb worked on counting by 12s to 144; expressions with variables; rounding to the nearest dollar; estimating the answer; and dividing by 7.
Classical Conversations Foundations – We completed Week 16, and here’s what we learned.
- English – helping verbs am, are, is
- Science – four kinds of volcanos
- History – the civilizations of Mesoamerica
- Math – the area of a rectangle equals length times width
- Latin – 1st Declension Noun Endings (singular and plural)
- Geography – Africa (Waters) – Zaire River (Congo), Lake Victoria, Zambezi River, Orange River, Nile River
- Timeline – Age of Industry, James Cook Sails to Australia and Antarctica, American Revolution and Gen. George Washington, Madison’s Constitution and the Bill of Rights, French Revolution, Second Great Awakening, Louisiana Purchase and Lewis and Clark Expedition
- Science Experiments – This week we did a stretch test using a balloon that we wrote on to show the effects of tension force. We also did a spurt test to show what causes magma to move by using a tube of toothpaste.
- Fine Arts – Great Artists – This week we studied Durer, and we made block prints.
I’ll admit…I’m losing my homeschool steam, and I think it’s time for a break. Thankfully, a week-long break is soon approaching. How about your? Are you still going strong, or are you in need of a break, too?
