We're done the Underground Railroad study, so back to our regular Term Two this week.
The Canadian history textbook moves on to the reasons for Confederation, with a special focus on the Atlantic provinces. I'm happy about that, since all year long we've talked mostly about Ontario and the West, but haven't done much with the Maritimes. We might even throw in a little extra Canadian geography there for good measure. UPDATE: we also read the chapter about David Livingstone from Story of the World Volume 4.
We will be getting back into Madam How and Lady Why, A Passion for the Impossible, and the Mary Cassatt picture studies. We've been keeping up with Plutarch.
We're almost finished Silas Marner--that went pretty quickly, and I'm not sure what we'll read next for literature. I think we'll squeeze in Caddie Woodlawn as an extra read-aloud book, since it fits with our history time period. Also "The Learned Adventure of the Dragon's Head," from Dorothy L. Sayers' Complete Stories.
What are you doing this week?
