This week was very productive and we ended up easily merging two weeks of history into one:
Cracks in Normalcy: Prohibition & the Bull Market
The Great Depression
|Lindenburg - Spirit of St. Louis|
Our first hands-on project was reading about Charles Lindbergh and his 'Spirit of St. Louis'. These models were not so easy to put together as the others' we've gotten by this company....so, I didn't mind the boys choosing to paint theirs all silver.
|Selected readings about The Great Depression|
Some of our reading this week!
It was a great week for movies (many rainy afternoons). After reading Eric Liddell's biography, we took in 'Chariots of Fire'.....we all agreed that while the movie was entertaining, Eric Liddell's real life was much more interesting. I was also surprised how much we all enjoyed 'Singin' in the Rain.'
|Women's Rights elements for lapbook|
The boys worked on their Modern American History lapbooks.
|Great Depression elements for lapbook|
While my daughter read book 1-3 of the American Girls, Kit Kittredge and worked on her American Girls lapbook.
Join us next week for more revelations of The Great Depression!
