Weekly Wrap-Up: Third Grade #15


Last week we finished Unit 14 ~ At the Time of the American Revolution and and this week we finished Unit 15 ~ Battles During the Revolutionary War in our Heart of Dakota book, Bigger Hearts for His Glory.

Books:

Read Aloud:  Rabbit Hill
Independent:  The Indian in the Cupboard
Science:  One Small Square: Woods

History:

Funny Bunny read about the battle between British General Cornwallis and American General Washington.  Cornwallis had backed Washington against the frozen Delaware River but Washington used initiative to outsmart Cornwallis and snuck around him to Princeton. 


Art:

Funny Bunny has started using Artistic Pursuits.  The lessons are simple and to the point and I'll be telling you more about it in my upcoming review.  For now, here is FB's drawing from Lesson One.


Activities:

Each year we participate in Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan Purse.  This year FB packed her shoebox and we dropped it off on Thursday.  You have to check out the video at the above link of Scotty McCreedy packing a shoebox.  He was FB's pick on American Idol so she was excited to watch it.  :)
