MFW Exploration to 1850 WEEK 12: India, Gymnosperms


This week we revised Bible memory James 2:1-4
And we memorized James 2:5-8

We learnt about India and Taj Mahal.

We played parcheesi and this video taught us well.

And we continued reading Madeleine Takes Command


We learnt about gymnosperms this week.
This was the cone we found

We put it in cold water

And this happened.

Then we put it in the oven at 250deg

It opened up again. It was quite fun to see that pine cones open in dry and warm climate.

We also went outside and looked at the gymnosperms.

We are using Artistic Pursuits K-3 (Book 2) this year.
We learnt about collages and the kids were really into it!
