The New History

Today began the final five weeks of the 2012-13 school year. It is bittersweet in a way, especially when you consider I am going to have a 5th grader soon. Where has the time gone?

K began her new history course today. I think she did a very good job. However, we haven't decided on a timeline yet and I'm still waiting on the geography coloring book to get here. For her first subtopic to learn more in depth, she has chosen the taming of animals. Basically, she wants to learn more about how the early farmers were able to domesticate sheep and cows. If we cannot find adequate information at the library, she is going to research the fertile crescent instead. I'm eager to see how she does on her outlining tomorrow and on her summary Friday.
