{CC} Cycle 3, Week 2


Heeeeere we go with CC Cycle 3, Week 2 ideas!

Here is my regularly scheduled disclaimer: we keep it simple here at Gettin' Skooled!  Our core is our weekly memory work.  After that, we focus on math and phonics.  But, we are a creative family and always need a little bit of inspired craftiness for fun.  Here are a few ideas!

Whuuuut?!?  We get to do Pilgrim crafts this week?!?  Two weeks in a row of fuuuuun craftiness!

HISTORY

There are lots of toilet paper pilgrim ideas out there, but I just love this idea of adding my kids' photo.  Plus, we can totally save these and use them as napkin holders at Thanksgiving!

I know my little Scoutie Girl would love to make a pilgrim girl hat:

For some reason, I think my 2 kindergarteners will really like making this drawing:

This one might be biting off more than we can chew, but for some reason, I think my kids might be into painting some 2x4s and making a wooden pilgrim:

Great YouTube video here that works for both Cycle 3 Week 2 AND 3:


GEOGRAPHY

We'll continue to use the mnemonic devices packet I mentioned in Cycle 3, Week 1 to memorize the states and capitals.  

Definitely going to show the kids this YouTube video of a man drawing through the capitals of the US (to an original song).  They will love this. 

SCIENCE

Might have to make a skeleton out of q-tips and label the parts.  Could also use different types of pasta.

Love this demonstration by A Cuppa for Mama on why we have bones!

ART

Here's a fun art project idea for the week:


Another idea is to make symmetrical bugs:
