Dollygirl's Grade Six: Last week of the term

We are on Week 12 of the 12-week term; next week is exams.  We do have a couple of "grace weeks" after that--the first two weeks of Term 2, before Christmas, can be used to finish off a few things that didn't get quite done.

Basic Bible Studies:  "Christ as Priest" (we will do "Christ as King" before Christmas as well)

God's Smuggler--continue, no hurry on this.  (Will Corrie accept Andrew's marriage proposal?)

Virgil's Aeneid, by N.B. Taylor--continue, no hurry.

The Hobbit:  done.

Robert Frost's poems:  winding this up.

Uncle Eric, chapter 13: "Cognitive Dissonance."

Grammar and Composition;  finish "How to Write Without Flab."

Math:  I think we will use this week to keep working on the distance-speed-time problems that we started last week.  There is a bonus page called "How fast does an astronaut travel?"

French:  we need to get as much done as possible this week.

Einstein biography:  ditto.  Although we're not going to get through it before exams...probably by Christmas, though.

Plutarch's Life of Pericles:  ditto, and ditto.

Shakespeare's Cymbeline:  ditto.

Canadian history:  this week's lesson is an easy one:  the Centennial in 1967.

Work on term project

Crafts, swimming lessons, drama club, and trying to get outside as long as this warmish weather lasts.
