We had a quiet week this week as we all got over being sick and tried to get back into the swing of school after the holidays.
We started using My Father's World curriculum part way through last term and are loving it. We are currently up to week 6 and finishing off our study of Mexico. Here are a few snapshots of what we did.
We added our paper doll and flag to our map.
For art we made Mexican Sun Faces.
We finished our study of Mexico by making our own Tortillas.
Of course, it wouldn't have been complete without having fajitas for dinner with our tortillas!
In science we have been learning about the desert. We learned about how cold blooded animals like tortoises stay cool in the desert and compared the temperature in the shade and in the sun.
Then we compared the time it took for ice melt in the shade, in the sun and buried underground. The kids were amazed at how long it took the buried ice to melt!
Next week we begin our study of Canada.
