Week in Review - HOD CtC Unit 32

Monday, May 1, 2017

This week we reached the most important event in history: The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It has been really cool reading from creation all the way to this moment in history and to see why God chose to bring Christ into the world at this exact moment in time. This age old story never gets old.

Our history project was to make a cross that would represent the life, death, and resurrection of Christ.

First he colored a cross to represent the life of Jesus.

He colored it black to represent his death.

Lastly, he etched a design to represent his resurrection.

Christ's Crucifixion and Resurrection - 30 A.D.

We made resurrection rolls to celebrate the resurrection. My mom used to make these when I was a kid. You wrap a marshmallow dipped in butter, cinnamon and sugar in a croissant roll. Jesus is the marshmallow :).

This is how they look after they are baked.

When we open them up they they are empty just like Jesus' tomb.

Silas's copywork was about the empty tomb. His tomb was a resurrection roll!

Christ's Ascension = 40 Days later - 30 A.D.

Pentecost - 10 Days after the Ascension - 30 A.D.
Silas wrote a narration about the healing of the disabled man at the Beautiful Gate.

After Pentecost the apostles established churches all throughout the Roman Empire.

Our poem this week was "Blueberries" by Robert Frost. It's a long one, but Silas persevered. I have to admit we are waning in our energy to paint, but we only have one left!

Silas did his final SCM Visits to the Middle East map, and was able to get all of them right from memory. I love this simple and effective program!

We finished Singapore math and have been reviewing fractions with Mr. Demme from Math U See. The kitty is always Silas's study partner. 3 weeks left! Phew!


  1. What fun! Those resurrection rolls are a neat idea. The cat must like Mr. Demme too. :)

    1. You should make some if you haven't before. Yum :)


Thank you so much for visiting :) I adore hearing from you!
