The Shot Heard Round the World...
Homeschooling is such a blast. We spent the week learning about Paul revere and the battles of Lexington and Concord that started the Revolutionary War. We read books by Jean Fritz, and others, we used the Liberty's Kids website and made colonial era paper dolls. It was so intriguing to the kids that they dressed up and waged war on the redcoats from the treehouse as militiamen!!
Then to work on the ocean unit a bit more we learned about crustaceans, narrated, and made sculpey crabs. What fun learning can be!!
