We are continuing to save toward our Water of Life project to help provide clean water to individuals/villages/schools. The kids continue to save spare change here and there and are very excited about how their donation bowl is filling up. Our final donation will be made at the end of our campaign on November 1, 2016. We would like to invite you to join in our campaign to help those in need of access to safe water. By clicking on the donation button below, you are able to donate straight to our campaign…be it $1, $5, $15, or more, the money you donate will go 100% toward clean water to those who need it.
For those of you who may be discussing this with your children, I created this color sheet to show some more concrete facts about the need for clean water. Feel free to print and use.
In late October, the four of us will have a chance to journey to Colorado for a family wedding. One of our planned stops on the way is to eat lunch at a volcano! Yep, Capulin Volcano National Monument in New Mexico. It is a fairly young, extinct volcano. After (or maybe before) lunch, we will walk a couple of the trails and explore lava flows, etc. With this in mind, it has given the perfect opportunity for us to begin a little earth science.
There is a wonderful volcano lapbook/unit study at Homeschool Share (click here for volcano lapbook). We have only just started these activities, but I really like the look and detail of the lapbook. The templates and lesson plans are free to use. Truly, I was overwhelmed at first with all of the detail provided, but then I realized we don’t have to be done with our study before we leave. We can study volcanoes as long as we want! I still sometimes forget this wonderful fact of homeschooling! If you are interested in some great lapbook or unit study resources, I encourage you to check out the Homeschool Share website. I haven’t completely figured out the navigation of the site, but it looks like there are some wonderful resources all around.
