We started a unit study on the presidential election this morning. I thought that this would be a great time to study the election process, the branches of our government, how the candidates feel about important issues, etc. I may even make the kids sit though a debate or two – LOL :)! Brendan and Ryan decorated their election folders and then we labeled a map of the Middle East as it looks today and compared it to earlier maps we have drawn. We also read about the discovery of King Tut’s tomb, worked on our reports, reviewed the OT books, completed an art lesson, and read another chapter in The Tanglewood’s Secret.
