Welcome to Unit 33 in RtR! These last few weeks will be short and sweet. I got a little behind, but fortunately I still took lots of pictures! This week we read about Charles II, The Ch'ing Dynasty, John Milton, Isaac Newton and John Bunyan.
Aedan's history project was to make a scripture flapbook.
When he was finished with it he read the scriptures to us and shared his faith.
Each section had a verse and a picture.
We added the finished flapbook to his history notebook.
Aedan researched Edinburgh, Scotland. He also added his timeline entries: K'ang-hsi and the Ch'ing Dynasty, John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and Sir Isaac Newton.
Aedan's written narration was about John Milton and his very, very long allegory Paradise Lost.
Aedan added to his history notebook.
He drew a Chinese pagoda with the instruction of Draw and Write Through History.
He mapped the kindoms of China.
Aedan finished his reading of Othello. This has been a great addition to our year!
Aedan studied the poem "The Chariot." I thought his picture was really funny. He thought it was hilarious that death would "kindly" stop for someone. This is one of the poems he memorized later. He drew a really funny picture I will share on that week's post.
In science Aedan learned about how glaciers move.
We mixed cornstarch and water. This was strange stuff! We made an incline so we could see how a glacier would move.
Next we placed an index card in its way.
This showed the shape a glacier develops with different types of obstacles.
Next we placed toothpicks in its path.
It made indentations.
We also tried boulders.
Eventually the glacier covered them and left bumps underneath. Off to week 34!
