Country Projects

Back in August I mentioned that Geshtro and Dimples were doing country projects for an upcoming fair that another homeschooling mom is putting together.  We've been slowly making progress on them and I'm so excited to see their final products, as well as all of the other kids' work.  Both of the kids narrowed their focus significantly to specific aspects of their country.  Geshtro is concentrating on the BBC and Dimples decided to focus on Native Americans.

Geshtro's decided to do a video.  He's finishing up the music composition and putting the video together now.  I can't say more about it, but it's so cool.

Dimples hasn't decided how she wants to present hers yet.  The last couple of weeks we've visited some places to help her learn and experience Native American life.  Two weeks ago we visited the Etowah Indian Mounds in Cartersville, GA.   Then last weekend we went to Cherokee, NC and visited the Oconaluftee Indian Village.  Both trips were amazingly beautiful and fun.  We took so many pictures, but I don't want to spoil the project so they will have to wait.  There's only a couple more weeks until the fair!
