The older kids have been learning about George Washington for History. I have decided that I would create them a blog and let their assignments for school be to post about what they are learning. This past week was George Washington and we read about him and looked him up on the internet. Their spelling words this week came from our study of him and some of their writing was journaling facts about him. A really neat study and we enjoyed it alot. Today for their final assignment they were to pick out 4-5 pictures and blog a post of their studies this week, you can find thier post at www.campfamilykids.blogspot.com. Enjoy!
P.S. This next week we will start a 4 week study of Africian-American's for Black History month (feel free to leave a comment about any suggestions you have). My goal will be to have Isaac and Sarah post about what we learn each week.
Week 1-Booker T. Washington, George Washington Carver and Addy the American Girl
Week 2- Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr.
Week 3- Jackie Robinson and Bo Jackson
Week 4- Samuel Morris and others
