Heart of Dakota Beyond - BLHFHG - Week 8 in Review

Sunday, October 27, 2013

As I said in Aedan's review post, this is long overdue! We are back from a full week off from school, and I am finally getting around to writing this post. In week 8 we journeyed with the Pilgrims on the Speedwell on their way to their final vessel, the Mayflower. We learned about the many problems the Pilgrims had aboard the Mayflower. They dealt with crowded living quarters, sickness and a lack of food. This was not a fun trip!

Silas's art project this week was to make his own version of the Mayflower.

We entered the Mayflower on our timeline.

We mapped the journey the Pilgrims took from England to America.

In science we learned about how oil is lighter than water.

I always love these cute little illustrations :)

Our second project was to learn about why it takes the earth much longer than a smaller planet to make it's full rotation. Silas spun around, and then we spun a pen to show how a smaller object takes less time.

In Elemental Science we learned about how cold blooded animals regulate their temperature. That's all for now. See you next week!

  1. Happy Monday! We are getting ready to start our week and I am grateful that my little girls didn't get the flu.

    I love getting your encouragement to start my week with a visual of your week :) It's so inspiring to keep going when I struggle to just get started.

    I am soooo behind in blogging. I have units 5, 6, and 7 to post and we are almost finished with 8, too. On my list "to do" list this week.

    I hope the book arrived.

    Blessings on your week!


Thank you so much for visiting :) I adore hearing from you!
