Homeschool Hi-Lights: Colonial Times Projects

Ellen from Fun Learning invited me to join her new meme: Homeschool Hi-Lights. To participate, just write a post about a highlight from your past week of home learning, then go to Fun Learning's Homeschool Hi-Lights post for the week and add the link to your post to Mr. Linky.

Last week was a great week for hands-on projects at our house. I have always had difficulty implementing the hands-on activities portion of Tapestry of Grace, so I am quite excited. We are currently studying colonial times. Several of the projects are from Great Colonial America Projects You Can Build Yourself, which is available for free here (free registration required).

Nathan made a lantern out of a tin can; Jordan made a paper backpack; Allyson made a cipher wheel, a ring-and-pin game, a bilbo catcher, a pomander, and a broom out of newspaper; and Kathryn made a pomander, a miniature table, and miniature chairs.

We also had a very successful nature study on Thursday.

If you would like to participate in this brand new meme or read other Homeschool Hi-Lights, then mosey on over to Fun Learning.

What a lot of neat hands-on projects. I can't believe you got all of those ideas for free. I've bookmarked the link. My kids like making things. And I like the fact that they learn from the projects. Thank you so much for participating in the first edition of this new meme. I really appreciate that you joined in.

That looks like such fun! I know my kiddos enjoy learning more when they can do hands-on projects like that. We had a fun nature study last week, too. Thanks for sharing your hi-light. Julie http://funinthesunmom.blogspot.com
