Week in Review - HOD CtC Unit 29

Sunday, April 9, 2017

Hi again! We enjoyed our week off, and I am finally catching up here. It's been fun reading through John with Silas for history. It's my favorite gospel, so it's been really neat discussing it each day. We read the feeding of the 5000, Jesus calming the sea, the healing of the blind man, and other miracles. While doing so we have read the prophecies from the Old Testament, and their fulfillment in the New Testament through Jesus.

I love how HOD history projects are a way to make what we read more memorable. This week we made an origami boat and painting of a stormy sea. We read about the day Jesus walked on its stormy waters and calmed that troubled sea.

We cut and folded various sizes of paper to see which one would fit best on our paintings.

We have added readings from The Victor Journey Through the Bible this year to help us learn a little more about each passage we have read.

It always has really great insight into the history and geography of the people and places we have read about in the Bible throughout this year.

Here are our final paintings. Silas copied Matthew 14:27, 33. I have loved painting alongside him all year.

Jesus Begins His Ministry - 26 A.D.

Jesus Chooses 12 Disciples - 12 A.D.

Jesus Feeds 5000 - 29 A.D.

Silas's copywork was about how there were many different thoughts about whether or not Jesus was the Messiah.

His written narration was about the healing of the blind man.

“You are not yet fifty years old,” they said to him, “and you have seen Abraham!”
“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”
We had 2 paintings this week. This might be my favorite yet. Our poem this week was "An Encounter" by Robert Frost. We really liked this poem.

Silas read about the many experiments and inventions of Newton. He drew some of them. How cute is this Newton?

We read about the 3 laws of motion, and Silas drew the consequences of some of them.

We did an experiment on acid rain way back in Unit 15, and finally took a look at the results. If you ever want to know why the Statue of Liberty is green combine salt, acid (vinegar) water, and copper. Each penny had a different solution. The top left was just water. The top right was just vinegar. The bottom left was water and salt, and the bottom right was vinegar and salt.

I'll share more about our week off in my monthly journal, but that's all for now. 6 more weeks!
