Silas made an oiled paper window for HOD art. We learned that the Pilgrims used oiled paper to let the light through the windows of their homes.
Here is Silas oiling his paper window.
We're studying the Pilgrims at the perfect time because we get to celebrate Thanksgiving soon!
We read about how the Pilgrims cut down trees and made frames for their homes. They all had to work together to get the first home in Plymouth built.
We built a frame with straws.
Our timeline is filling in nicely. This week we added Plymouth to our grid.
Silas continues to add more of God's word to his little heart :)
In science we learned about axes and wedges and how the Pilgrims used them to cut down trees, and split logs.
Scissors are wedges we use almost every day.
We used a wedge to keep a door open, and other uses for wedges.
We read John 4:27-38. We learned about sowing, reaping and harvesting. Silas planted rows of corn...
.....reaped and harvested them.
Silas records our activity on his science log.
