Naomi taught us about the solar system and showed us a wonderful model.
Then Alli taught us about the groundbreaking female scientist, Marie Curie.
We did a feast of Indian foods for lunch. It was the first time the kids and I have ever had naan bread. Delicious! We also had chicken curry soup and vegetarian curry with a salad.
Had to throw in this adorable picture of Josiah with Rina.
Alli did her presentation on the sun and stars.
Can anyone say, "drama queen"???
Josiah taught us about some basic British currency and showed us pictures.
We decided to do a Greek themed lunch complete with Baklava. So yummy!
We are having fun with the various hats and clothing we mined from the local thrift stores.
Naomi shared a wind experiment with us.
Then we got all my bird identification books out and had each child pick out a bird to draw. These are vintage books from my Grandma Ellen and very special to me.
Alli drew a red-winged blackbird.
Gracia drew a barn owl.
Josiah loves the call of a black-capped chickadee.
Hailey drew an owl, too.
Mexican-themed lunch - tostadas!
Josiah taught us about Hitler's childhood and then his rise to power in Germany and subsequent death.
The lovely Gracia did her presentation on Mao Tse Tung, the Chinese leader during the WWII era.
That's a wrap for the Magician's Nephew. Each family also did a lot of different readings and documentaries and such on their own. We watched The Hiding Place. We are currently working through Little Women each night. The kids are really enjoying it and I am, too.
See you in the Wardrobe next time!
