Andy and the Lion was an interesting book (a retelling of Androcles and the Lion) and the boysenjoyed it. It was a casual row, not a lot of pictures here, but I had to get around to posting our last row!
We discussed Africa, since that's where lions are found naturally. I pulled a quick map from Super Teacher Worksheets.
Literature - Aesop's Fables and Tall Tales
We discussed the idea of fables and tall tales, before reading some.
I pulled up a version of Androcles and the Lion to read to the boys. Elliott immediately compared it to Jesus washing the feet of the disciples--if I can do this for you, you can do this for others.
We also read a version of Paul Bunyan and watched the Disney short on YouTube.
Writing - Openings and Closings
We covered the lesson in the manual, but it tied in with the lesson from Here to Help Learning on writing attention-grabbing opening and closing sentences.
We watched a documentary from Netflix, Lions: Spy in the Den. Emory really enjoyed it.
I saw this cute tri-fold Animal Report on Pinterest and knew it would be a fun way to do an animal study.
Sculptures/StatuesOne of the lessons in the manual related to sculptures and statues, and I thought it would be fun to make our own. We pulled a lesson for reference from ARTistic Pursuits.
Elliott made this . . . man. For some reason, he almost reminded me of a certain claymation character, no?
