Week 4

What a great week in Adventures!  We have a lot of fun projects this week.  Over the next few weeks, we are learning how Jesus is the Light of the World.  To kick off the week, we made this candle by spreading glue on and putting a paper on that says "Jesus the Light of the World" and sprinkling salt all over it.  We are going to light it every night for dinner. 

We are also learning about Native Americans this week.  Today, we made this wigwam out of a construction paper base with torn up brown paper bags glued over it.  When it dried, we cut a hole in the top for the smoke and we cut a door out.  It was actually hard work and tried both of us in patience, but it turned out pretty nice and we DID have fun!  Tomorrow we are making a teepee (much easier) complete with twigs and watercolor for the outside!

Friday we are planning to visit the historical society where they have life-sized teepees and wigwams that you can walk into and get more of a feel for how the Native Americans actually lived!  I can't wait...I love field trips!  Oh, yeah, and so do the kids  LOL!
