N worked on this train lapbook. We found it at Homeschool Share. N loves trains. He lives & breathes trains! He plays a train simulator game on the computer where he drives a real train - different kinds. He has many different train sets & still plays with them daily. In fact, next year I'm going to do one special project with each boy. N, no surprise here, has picked trains.
B started asking me about the election process during the primary elections here in our state. At about that time I heard about a free 12-week unit study on the election process for the elementary grades. Homeschool Share also had a free election lapbook that we did as well. He had a really good time with this. We also attended the one-day TeenPact seminar for 8-12 year olds. He loved it which surprised me. He got right up & talked in front of everyone with no problem. Sometimes he holds back so I was surprised (although so proud!) that he had no hesitation. We're looking forward to going back again next year.
