Ancient Literature / History / Art Cycle (With Some Chemistry on the Side)

Just a little light reading on the schedule this month:
The Epic of Gilgamesh, The Code of Hammurabi, and Till We Have Faces.
The kids have also virtually explored the Caves of Lascaux, the Gate of Ishtar, and the mysteries of Stonehenge.
In Art co-op we have designed our own cave painting shoe boxes,



 crafted low relief sculptures with recycled styrofoam,

and molded animals out of terra cotta clay.



While the high school kids separated the H2 fro the O in Dr. Marsha's Lab, 
the elementary school students grew borax crystals on my window sill.

I am really proud of the work the kids have been doing. They are also enjoying the beautiful fall weather and fun Fridays playing football on the lawn. Life is good, and I am thankful for the gift of home education- which allows me to enjoy every moment of it with them.
