We have just finished our 6th week of school! It has been a busy 6 weeks, too!
In History we have been studying the Renaissance time period. Last week we studied Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel. We finished our study by painting our own "Sistine Chapel". We taped a coloring sheet of part of Michelangelo's famous painting to the underside of their desks and they laid on their backs to paint them.
This was a fun project!!
In Science this year we are studying Chemistry. So far we have learned about elements, mixtures and compounds. This week we learned about the structure of atoms. We made giant atom models to go along with our studies. You can find directions to make these modes HERE.
Of course, we take time out of our busy homeschooling schedule to do a little recess, too.
