This year we are studying World History ~beginning with Creation, Consumer Math ~ a practical application of math in our day to day lives...car ins., buying a home, interest rates, budgets, utilities, balancing a checkbook, etc, Zoology ~ animals, insects, etc, Church History, and we will learn about different composers and their music ~ Handel, Bach, Beethoven, etc. I did not buy a language book for this year ~ Will and Amy both are going to work on research, complete sentences, paragraphs, etc...something they are both week in.
Added to the regular curriculum will be lots of crafts, jigsaw puzzles, problem solving, diligent work ethics, yard work, gardening, and canning. They will also have plenty of free time!
