July 4th All American Historystacey lane
To help celebrate July 4th, I have raided the scratch and dent box at the BIP office. I have 2 complete sets of All American Volume 1 to give away! This includes: the Student Reader book, the Teacher Guide and the Student Activity Book! I will randomly pick two blog entries from the responses to this blog. (Well, actually I let my kids do it!) In order to be eligible to win, please share with us (in your comment) a favorite history project completed in the past few years of school.
Here in the Lane household, making a model of Egypt out of cookie dough with Hershey kisses as the pyramid and blue sprinkles as the Nile River was yummy and a favorite project.
We enjoyed a few random movies that still make us chuckle. One was a 1980’s version of Macbeth and when Macbeth rode in on a motorcycle I nearly lost it. Actually, other then being in a somewhat modern day setting it followed the play really well.
One night using our Wii Fit, we held our own version of the Greek Olympics. We picked 5 activities to compete with. Everyone wore their togas and the winner was crowned with our homemade laurel wreath. The kids thought it was a hoot watching Mom and Dad in their togas trying to hula hoop.
Winners will be posted here so check back next week!
