So you know E12 has been dying to play Axis and Allies since Christmas. He finally convinced some siblings to play the other day and they love it! I find this a bit hard to believe, but there it is. Those not so enchanted with Risk think Axis and Allies is amazing. But, their interest in playing a WWII game made me think about some other areas of our IHIP (Individualized Home Instruction Plans) that we had not yet approached. Enter The Lion Preparatory Academy and a study of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
|Axis & Allies– it will be interesting to add a timeline to our prior knowledge of WWII because our kids have studied this topic several times now. Each time we add another layer. This time it’s lots more detail in the timeline for the older kids.|
|A sample from the first week of LWW. We are looking forward to tea time tomorrow.|
|The kids can see what the agenda is for the unit study each day. Number 4 has more going on and they made a notebook page of it.|
This book study is expected to take 6 weeks. I’m sticking with several topics/activities per week so that we can keep a forward momentum. This time of year I like to be mindful of lingering too long on a topic. It’s also a great time to study as a family and give work to the kids according to their ability. J5 is also doing his FIAR work. I8 is along for this Narnia study at his request.
