HOD Creation to Christ - CtC Week 13 in Review

Sunday, December 1, 2013

We had a great Thanksgiving week here at Monarch Room. We had already taken a week off in October, so we did school for 4 days this week. Our studies in this unit focused on Elijah and Elisha. I had such a fun time discussing these stories with Aedan this week :)

Our poem this week was Robert Frost's "Range-Finding." The more we read these poems each week, the more I remember how much I love poetry. It's fun seeing Aedan's "ah ha" moments when he realizes what pictures the words are painting.

There is a stanza in the poem about a bullet flying through a spider's web. Aedan added a spider web to his painting.

This is Aedan's history notebooking page of the week.

Aedan wrote about Elijah parting the Jordan with his cloak, and about him being taken up in a whirlwind. I love "Israel's Got Talent!" Ha!

Aedan also wrote about Elijah and his showdown with the prophets of Baal.

He added Samaria becomes Israel's capitol, Elijah at Mt. Carmel, and God fights for Jehoshaphat and Judah to his timeline.

Our history activity was to make a dough map, and I decided I didn't want to deal with the rig-a-ma-role of all that. Aedan instead mapped the areas we would have otherwise sculpted in clay.

 
We are wrapping up our geography study of Israel. Next week will be our last week in Israel, and we will move on to another country.

We studied arachnids in science. Aedan's experiment was to make a spider web outside.

He needed a little help, but once I got him started he did a great job :)

This is his lab sheet for the above activity.

Aedan loves all creatures even spiders. He's been known to protect them at parks, and other places. I on the other hand spare no violence when a spider ends up in the house (though I rarely have to take care of it myself.) My husband usually will take the offender outside to appease both me and Aedan. Aedan has one more week in Apologia, and then he will move on to a bird study. See you next week!
