When we decide on a topic we always head over to the book shelf to see what we have available to read and learn.
Some geography, photography, & literature...
Then we head over to the computer desk to get paper and file folders and this time we printed some worksheets off Enchanted Learning and we decided to make our own lapbook that we filled with our worksheets, & crafts all about Japan.
Then we headed over to the arts and crafts bin and dug out some art supplies. We decided to have fun with Origami and then we made a Koi fish wind sock.
We looked and played with some currency that Mr.Watts brought back from his last trip to Asia. And then we curled up on the couch and we looked at some photography and maps from Asia and read some old folk tales from Japan.
That is how we like to do a Unit Study in our home. It does not have to be something really complicated or take weeks to plan. I have found that some of our best units the ones my children have retained the most from are the ones we did not plan out in advance but
just jumped right into.
And Anna is feeling much closer to her Daddy now that she knows all about Asia & Japan and where he is.
Update on Wyatt: Wyatt our puppy is spending the night with the vet he looked sick today and did not want to eat...we are not sure what is wrong. The children said a very nice prayer for him Hopefully he will be feeling better soon and be able to come home.
For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
