Today we’ve punted all other school plans in favor of me wandering amidst the laundry with my bar of chocolate in my hand a quick study of Christopher Columbus. Thought you guys might like to see how I pull together a quick unit study for Columbus Day with nothing but YouTube and an internet connection. Here’s the links to what we watched:
This was a great overview, just silly enough to hold their attention, but factual enough to please me.
This was a bit over-the-top dramatic, but it gave them a good idea of the boats (something my boys love) and a sort of “this makes it real life” moment.
Nothing says “important educational experience” like a bit of Sesame Street.
And now, if I can locate the scissors and construction paper (which I most likely hid after our last arts and crafts experience), we may even do a craft.
But don’t hold me to that. I may need more chocolate before that happens.
