School Update: France. zebras and rocks

It's a little late getting posted but the two weeks of December that we had school we had a lot of fun!

4th Grade

We learned about France! We read about Paris, the Eiffel tower, Notre Dame and other places in Paris. Learned about an area of France that has lots of castles and made a few French foods including hot chocolate and French bread. We found a great paper city of Paris that Chelsea just loved! It's found at Made By Joel and that site also had a paper nativity, city of Sydney (for when we get to Australia) and lots of other fun crafts and projects for kids.

 French bread from this recipe only twisted

working on vocabular flashcards. We had a few to catch up on


We learned about zebras and that they live with other animals in Africa. I found animal masks online and they each made a zebra mask. A new addition to our school for the zebra week was a sensory bin. This included rice for the base, lots of animals, plants, containers and spoons. The kids had a lot of fun making a zoo with it. Here's some pics from out week.We just did the basics for our rock week along with a lot of impromptu learning adventures the week before Christmas.  One day was a "shopping day" with the toy cash register and play money. Another was a game with number cards and the three worked together to put the numbers in order from 1-50.
