"Shalom" from Israel!

This week in our Expedition Earth studies we "travelled" to Israel.  So first stop was stamping their passports and finding that teeny tiny country (same size as New Jersey) on the map. 

I think her finger is covering the country it's so small.

They practiced writing their names in Hebrew as well as "Hello" and "Thank-you"!

Here is the flag for Israel with the "Star of David" in the center.

They put together their animal mini-books and added the animals to the wall classification chart!

They added the Israel label to the continents poster.

We learned about the "Dome of the Rock" and they made their own very "colorful" one!

And they made a Mosaic Coaster (just bought a kit at Michaels)

First they created their design, then added glue to the tiles, turned tiles over and gave it 30 minutes to dry.

Next the grout was added (I messed up though and added too much water...woops).

We also read about Missionary William Carey last week and this week they "translated" a message just like William Carey translated the Bible into Hindi for the people of India.

They were added to their "Keepsake" boxes for our YWAM  missionaries!

Other things we did this week:
  • Learned the Zum Gali Gali song
  • Prayed for Israel
  • Learned how to say hello in Hebrew
  • About Children in Israel
"Toda" (thank-you) for visiting my blog.  "Lehitrahott" (goodbye) until next week...where we will be off to Thailand (my favorite food is Thai so we will certainly be going out to a Thai restaurant!)
