Neil Armstrong: Young Flyer (Ch 2)


This week was a little tough as the kids were pretty sick. While wrapped in blankets, they managed to plow through their work.

He also read First Flight the Story of Tom Tate and the Wright Brothers.

King Edward VIII:

I added King Edward VIII’s Abdication speech to our Neil Armstrong – Young Flyer playlist.

Geography – England:

Last week, Jordan learned about The British Isles in his Mystery of History, vol II lessons. He had mapwok identifying the countries that together form The British Isles and those that are Great Britain.

This week, he focused on reading about the countries that make up Great Britain. I love when our curriculums align.

At the end of the week, Jordan color-coded the countries of Great Britain.
