Hello dear ones! This is how we learned during week 5 of the 1800’s:

The Statue of Liberty

  • Michael put together a Statue of Liberty lapbook.
  • We read about the Statue of Liberty in Story of the World book 4.
  • Michael did a splatter paint Statue of Liberty craft, using a silhouette.
  • Michael drew a picture of it, using his Draw Through History book.
  • Michael watched a video on the making of the Statue of Liberty.

Technology

  • Michael read “Out of Darkness” about Louis Braille.  Then he drew his name in Braille.
  • We read about Samuel Morse, Vincent Van Gogh, and Alexander Grahm Bell.
  • Michael read about Thomas Edison and the light bulb.
  • Chris and Michael made a homemade lightbulb using a mason jar, wire, batteries, and pencil lead. It was such a cool experiment! The diy video is on my Pinterest link.
