"Shwmae" from the United Kingdom!

What a fun & busy week we had!  This week in our Expedition Earth studies we visited the United Kingdom!  This is definately an area of the world I would love to visit some day, and my girls wholeheartedly agree.  First things first, they stamped their passports and located the country on the map!  The United Kingdom is made up of Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and England!

They learned how to write "Hello", "Thank you", and "Good-bye" in Welsh.

They always love dancing to the song of the week from our Wee Sing Around the World CD!

They completed a flag and map for their notebooks!

They added "United Kingdom" label to the Continents Wall poster.

They love making the animal mini books and placing the animals on our wall classification chart.  Animals included: Sand Lizard, Adder, Eurasian Otter, Red Squirrel, Basset Hound, and Hedgehog!

They did a fun Quilling Paper project!

Learned about Stonehenge and made their own out of clay.

Worked on their GeoPuzzle for Europe.

And watched a YouTube video of Britains Got Talent - Susan Boyle

This week for our Missionary studies, we read about George Mueller!

We also mananged to go on a field trip with friends to the local children's museum!

And we attended Presentation night for our homeschool co-op!  Our oldest sang on stage with her class
"I wanna Sing, Sing, Sing"

A few other things we did:
  • Prayed for the country
  • Watched YouTube videos about Big Ben and the the London Eye!
  • Read out of our Encyclopedia of World Geography
  • Learned about Children from this country
Told you it was a busy week!  Well "Diolch" (thank you) for checking out my blog!  "Hwyl fawr" (good bye) until next time.  Next stop is France!

  1. You are one amazing homeschooling Mama! Those are quite the projects for one week. I had fun browsing through and getting ideas (I oversee my three younger siblings' homeschooling this year). And how ironic that you're learning about France next, because I also got to visit there when I went to Europe last year. (If you look at November/December of last year on my blog, you'll see pictures from the trip.)

    You're doing a wonderful job encouraging the homeschooling moms out there! Keep it up!
