We have reached the penultimate week of the 2019-20 school year!
Turkey and Bunny finished their health curriculum this week. They’re also finished with physics, other than the last test. They analyzed several of John Donne’s works, including Meditation XVII, which I thought was very felicitous in this time of isolation. They also learned about the Great Depression in US history, which may have been a bit too felicitous…
Ladybug read about the brain and nervous system in science. She started a section of review in pre-algebra, in anticipation of the big final exam next week. In history we read about the Alamo and the Mexican-American War, as well as the colonization of New Zealand. We also reviewed United States geography this week.
Chickadee learned a little bit about measuring volume in math. She read about Pluto, and all of the reasons it is no longer considered a planet, in science. She finished all but the final review lesson in her Explode the Code books for this year. We’re almost done with My Father’s Dragon, and she has really enjoyed the story!
One more week to go, and then I don’t know what we’re going to do with ourselves!
