MFW-ECC - Week 16 - Germany

Our Week in Review

This week went by even faster than the last one! I am so glad to be taking the ENTIRE week of Thanksgiving off from school next week. The kids are REALLY excited about that! I need to catch up on cleaning and laundry something awful. I'm hoping to be able to relax a bit and look forward to spending time with family and friends too :)


This week, the kids made Edelweiss hats. 

As you can tell, they made each hat according to their own style and they didn't want to add the flowers and feathers. If you'd like to find out how to make your own hat, click here.


Somehow, we completely skipped the selected reading for Properties and Ecosystems this week :-o   That's too bad too, the freezing fresh and saltwater experiment looked interesting.  
In Living World, the kids enjoyed reading about freshwater plants and animals. We even watched a few interesting videos.
To watch a short video of cichlid fry coming out from its parent's mouth, click here. The background music is kooky, but the kids thought the video was cool and weird all at the same time ;)
This short video shows a huge paddlefish eating.


This subject was rather uneventful. The kiddos stamped their passports and entered Germany. We also played the geography game a time or two this week.


We are thoroughly enjoying reading about George Muller. I have enjoyed it so much that I wanted to delve deeper into his life by downloading his book, A Narrative of Some of the Lord's Dealings. You can actually download it for free if you would like to read it as well. Click here to go to that site.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!
