I'm so happy! I believe we've found *it*!! Just what I've been looking for. It's not terribly teacher intensive, yet there are a variety of activities! I love it!
Last Sunday we had puppies... that was a learning experience for us all!!
Monday we started Adventures in My Father's World. We talked about names and the fact that they have meaning. We chose to do an activity not listed... We made bookmarks with our names, then decorated them with stickers. On the back I wrote what the names mean. The best part was that I got to use my nifty laminating machine when we were done!! :).

I think that they had the most fun on Thursday when we talked about Leif Eriksson. I read the assigned pages from Exploring American History, and we discussed the origin of Vikings. They had fun retelling me (with the World map) the exact route that was taken. Here is the figure we added to our American History Timeline.
Today (Sunday) we finished with our Science Experiment that was supposed to be completed on Thursday. Will an egg float in regular water? Will it float in salt water?
