George Washington Carver


I like to add literature into our curriculum as much as possible, and my daughter, book-lover that she is, has no objection. Biographies can be a strong supplement to any subject, including math and science. Since we are studying botany this term, we read about George Washington Carver’s struggles to obtain an education in a time when most African Americans were still working on their former slave master’s land. After explaining that this George Washington is a different one, lol, we discovered his many contributions  to the field of science and agriculture and thus discovered just how relevant the field of  botany is. My daughter has a new found appreciation for the study of plants, InshaALLAH.

We used a lapbook purchased from Currclick for this project. We left out the pages that had bible verses and so on….I finally took the time to learn how to alter lapbook templates to add Quran instead of bible verses and I may do that in the near future, InshaALLAH.

Revisiting Nutrition/Ancient Egypt

It has been a while since we’ve talked about healthy eating habits around here and since everyone is older, now is the time. I’ve noticed that they eat all the time. I mean, all the time. There is not a moment that goes by that I don’t have a child asking me for something to eat. The older ones have learned how to use the toaster to make sandwiches and the younger ones couldn’t be happier. Now if only I could get them to clean their rooms.

Shopping Around

Library Discards
Since my last post, we’ve been busy. We just returned from the library, well, actually, we went to two. I am trying to create a library for my kids so I visit the neighbors when they have yard sales and we check the library for old stock. The first one that we visited didn’t have any discards but the second had a few interesting books and VHS tapes.
