Timeline and Lapbook for WW2

23 Feb

Today we continued our study on WW2.  I found this amazing Unit Study to add to our studies.  We have been using Tapestry of Grace for 3 years, and I love it!  My oldest son is in Rhetoric, my middle son is in Dialectic, and my youngest son is in Upper Grammar.  I usually try to find something to add to the younger son’s work to make sure he is grasping all the concepts we cover.  He doesn’t like to read a lot, so this proves to be a challenge in TOG because it is literature driven.

However, we do a lot of read a louds and books on tape.  Luckily, we are in Y4, so a lot of his books can be found online.  They  have been interested in history this year because we have been discussing WW1 and WW2.

I came across a great product this week and decided to give it a try.  It is a product from Homeschool In The Woods-Time Travelers.  Here is the link to their website: History Through the Ages.  I printed off the timeline and the timeline figures and got that setup today.  A lot of what we did today was review (as we had already covered through Pearl Harbor in TOG), but I wanted to go back and get the timeline done.

I think the timeline is a great way for them to visualize when these events took place.  They can look at the timeline and see it!

I highly recommend this product!

We will also be doing additional projects over the next few weeks.  Here are just a few of those:

-Victory Garden

-Silly Putty

-Making Bombers

-Salt dough map of Europe

 

Be Blessed,
Kimberly 🙂

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    help from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making
    my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
