After a not so restful Sabbath week, we resumed with our 'normal' school activities.
In our study of Flying Creatures, we spent some time looking through field guides and listening to bird calls on CD. We are brushing up on the birds that inhabit this area and looking forward to cooler weather to seek out these winged creatures!

During 'down time', my middle schooler had a great time assembly this 3-D puzzle of The Statue of Liberty.

My daughter and I had a special craft time together centered around The Princess and the Kiss Bible study. Using an umbrella and fabric paint we created a visual reminder of 'submission to authority' citing Jesus as our example.

My oldest has come a long way in the pursuit of art. Admittedly he's not a huge fan, but, likes the idea of earning college credit now instead of later!
This video was taken before our co-op Art class:
|My oldest's version of MC Escher|
The older kids studied MC Escher from the 'Meet the Masters' series. I can happily report that the majority of groans over doing art disappeared after the project was completed!
|My youngest's version of Degas|
The younger kids did Degas, also from the "Meet the Masters" series. The chalk dust shading went unfinished due to an undiagnosed chalk allergy!
Working on her task cards, my 3rd/4th grader discovered Biomes and Habitats!
