Summer School: Adventures weeks 30-34

by Dani

We finished up our 5 weeks of summer school a few weeks ago in the first part of Aug. And in the process finished up the last 5 weeks of Adventures in My Father's World. Because it was summer school (after all) it was a bit lighter then our normal school year. We did Bible and the three "R"s along with a condensed version of the history and hit the high points in science. That was it. Still it was fun (mostly). Some of the favorites from these last weeks of Adventures were the Transcontinental railway, all the inventors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and the read aloud "Stories from Grandma's Attic". I also added a touch more modern history which Adventures skips by letting the kids watch the three American Girl movies from this era. We watched Samantha, Kit, and Molly during the last two weeks and enjoyed them greatly.

I didn't take many pictures but here is our state wall after we had finished all 50 states (sorry for the glare). 



And here are our Jesus name posters...  

I also wanted to share our timeline. I did it was a fold-able one this year and had both Adventures and the First Grade timeline on it.

Adventures was a really great year for us. And while I'm a little sad to move on, I'm sure we will have a blast this coming year as well!
