Week 23 - China, Haiku, and the Samurai

Here are a few highlights from our week...

We opted not to paint a Diptych because it was so similar to the Triptych the kids painted from last week and the kids already got the jist of it. Instead, we saved our Haiku activity for art time.

I think the kids did a great job!

Sorry, I cut off part of the word...it says, "some have eyes and some do not"...pretty clever ;)

I had never heard of Peter Waldo and the Waldensians. It has been both fascinating and sickening learning about the early Church of Rome. With so many atrocities being committed by the supposed Christian Church in that time, it is easy to see how the Reformation period was ushered in.

Here is a link to the art of a Japanese Samurai Warrior Dance.

Sumo Wrestling  to which my daughter said, "Inappropriate!"

Last week was the sun and this week is Mercury. Both of the kids planets are coming along nicely. My son has been working in astronomy all year long and his planets are stored at co-op until the last class day. My daughter is doing hers at home though b/c she is not in the astronomy class at co-op.

We did not complete any of the projects on Mercury b/c the kids still remembered doing these same activities from a few years ago when we studied astronomy.
