HOD Creation to Christ - CtC Week 8 in Review

Sunday, October 27, 2013

This post is long overdue! We wrapped up week 8 a week ago, but we've been enjoying a week off from school. We chose not to leave town. My husband had an extra week of vacation to use, or he'd lose it. This was the first time we ever just stayed home for a good ol' staycation. It is nice not feeling exhausted after a week of travel. I'm starting to get a little too used to all this extra time on my hands though, so it's back to work tomorrow.

I'll be keeping this short. I'm afraid I don't have as many pictures to share for this week's review. Week 8 focused on Joshua, and some of the judges of Israel. We have 2 weeks off from watercolor paintings, and Aedan is memorizing his favorite poem we've studied so far.

We made a model of the crossing of the Jordan River for our history project. Aedan did such a great job on his tiny Ark of the Covenant. Silas loaned him some of his Lego mini-figures to represent the 12 tribes of Israel.

This week we read about the 12 spies, and Gideon's Army. I don't know if you can click on this picture and see what the 12 spies are saying. So funny :)

Aedan documented facts about Joshua, Deborah, and Gideon.

We finally completed a whole sheet of the prophesies and fulfillment of scripture. Aedan is starting to see why these are important.

This week's studies in science centered on hoofed creatures. 

Aedan continues to love his science readings. I think he's going to be so sad when he realizes that he won't read this book all year.

We learned about all the different gaits of the horse, and tried to do them with our fingers.

We had a great opportunity to see the Kansas City Symphony perform. They do an education series. The tickets are free, so we were so thankful to learn about the different families of instruments.

We had another treat this week. Our zoo opened a beautiful new penguin exhibit. We waited in line for 30 minutes, but it was worth it. Normally there aren't lines at the zoo. That is one of the many homeschool perks. However, it must have been a teacher work day because every child in Kansas city was there. Aedan picked up his brother without my asking, so that he could see better. Well it's back to the grind! See you next week :)
