The Worth of a Challenge

If you give a child a fish, you feed him for a day.
If you teach a child to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
But if you teach a child to learn, you feed him for a lifetime
and he doesn't have to just eat fish.

finishing up a unit

Finished Lapbooks

My first grader, Jacob did three lapbooks and here they are all finished and a small description of what we've learned.

The first lapbook was about rocks and minerals and it came together really fast and fun.

Here is the second, it was about westward expansion and traveling on the Santa Fe and Oregon Trail. For our inspiration we went to the Mormon Battalion in Old Town San Diego and got some hands on experience there.

Lastly, we finished our lapbook about Chrysanthemum. It was a sweet story about a little girl who over comes being teased over her name. The story is great because it gives little kids tools to over come being teased and a great perspective about why we should never tease.
