Week 16 - Barbarians and the Islamic invasion

Here are a few highlights from our week...

We just completely skipped art this week. Well, sort-of...  The kids finally found the new package of play-doh a bought a few weeks ago. They've had lots of fun with that, so I guess that counts towards art time ;)

We are continuing our studies on Islam and Muslims. It baffles me how so many people could be mislead so easily by one man. No signs, no wonders, no miracles as Jesus had done. No corroborating stories of multiple people backing up what Jesus said to be true. Nope, just one man and his "vision". That is pretty scary :/

History ties in with what the kids are learning about in the Bible portion of our school day- the Arab world, the barbarians, and the Islamic invasion.  

We watched a few videos.
Here is one about the Barbarians and a funny one about them as well. Here is a video about Clovis, the king of the Franks, and here is a video about the conquest of Spain.

This week, the focus was on the heart. We added the heart cut-out to our models, watched a video about the circulatory system, and started working on putting together a small-scale model of the heart.

Week 15 - Falling behind...

Here are a few highlights from our week...

I had no idea I had fallen behind a few weeks in my blogging. Too much going on, I guess.

I really don't remember a whole lot from week 15 aside from illnesses and doctor appointments, so this will be pretty short.

We started our study on Muslims and Islam and pray daily for Muslims to come to know the one true God. 

We did more, but nothing very blog-worthy ;)
