After talking with the kids, I found out that they wanted to do more hands on type stuff, projects etc. I love Robinsons because it is SO basic and effective, but we are going to try adding a few things to our study day. The kids will still be doing their RC (Robinson Curriculum), which is the 3R’s.
Science – Anatomy Lapbook
This week, we are beginning an Anatomy Lapbook.
I thought the kids didn’t care for lapbooks. We did a few when they were younger, but they didn’t seem interested. They told me that they didn’t like all the writing. LOL! But now that they are older, they should be able to handle the writing.
They already finished reading their Anatomy book, so this will be review. We will most likely store it in a binder using 3-hole cardstock to hold the lapbook components.
I made notebooking pages to go along with this study, but because the kids read ahead in the book, they didn’t get them all done. I was going to have them do the notebooking pages as review until they mentioned that they wanted to do more project type stuff.
History – Ancients
We are also going to be doing Beautiful Feet’s Ancient History. I am going to combine it with the Jewish History we are going to do. I am excited about this.
I already bought the Ancient Egypt History Pockets and found this nice free Ancient Egypt Lapbook.
We will also be studying Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. I am anticipating 2-3 months for each.
Well, those are a few changes we will be implementing this month.
