In Unit #8 Samuel built a safe house. It wasn't easy living during colonial times with all the fighting between the Indians and the White people.
He also created a wampum belt out of dyed rice, memorized Proverbs 29:25, began cursive handwriting, studied the character trait 'courage', colored a diagram of the planets in the order that they orbit the sun, and reviewed math concepts covered in the previous units.
A field trip to Bass Hall, in Downtown Fort Worth, accompanied by Nylia and Miscily was a lot of fun. The theme of the concert was "The Composer is Dead", a murder mystery with narration way over their heads, but with exciting and enjoyable music none the less.
We walked a few blocks over to UNO'S Pizza and the kids had the opportunity to make their own pizzas. Yummy!
Not a bad start for 2010.
