Last week we wrapped up our unit study on Paddle-to-the-Sea. This is one of my childrens' favorite stories. They loved using the map and learning more details about the Great Lakes region. We also spent some extra time on the geology of Niagara Falls (a passion of mine) and capped everything off with a big bowl of popcorn while watching the original movie.

Next week we will begin "The Tree in the Trail". In anticipation of our next adventure, we are enjoying nightly readings of "The King's Fifth" by Scott O'Dell. Happy trails!
