Nearing The Finish Line!

What are they doing?  

They are playing Catechism Drill!  

We are truly nearing the finish line!  Keep your eyes on Jesus!

Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2 AMP)


This week we researched the eye and all of the thought the Lord put into creating our sight.  When we look at the details we see the Creator.

Last week we learned how God perfectly purposed our digestive system.  It's what keeps our bodies going.  This wonderful little class project was done by Bethie White.  She used household objects to re-create the digestive system by heart.  Then she let another student try it.  It was such an excellent tool.  Bethie walked in the Dialectic stage of learning through her research and then in the Rhetoric stage by teaching.  She will now own this information for life.


This is how we plan to test out drawing the world by heart.  It will be broken down into our last three weeks.  Please note the dates and countries so that your student can prepare.  Next week we will begin this process with the United States, Canada, and South America.

The following week we will cover the above listed countries.

Our final week we will complete the entire world!

Oh how happy my heart is to finish this school year.  Not because it's over, but because my children have grown and gained understanding.  We see Jesus in all the details of every single subject.
