School Projects

The kiddos have a history project assignment each month. They know that the project is due on the last Friday of the month, and they do NOT get reminders from Mom. So far, they have successfully completed their projects on time. I feel that this is an important step in teaching them to be responsible and punctual. So, here are the results of this month's work:


Since we've been reading about the westward movement in Sonlight Core D+E, Doodles chose to make a covered wagon.


Well, Bug got really...ahem...creative with his project. Since we'd read about several inventors and their inventions (Robert Fulton-steamboat, Eli Whitney-cotton gin, to name a few) he decided to invent something. What is it? Well, it's a "dog food feeder."
And how do you use it? See the pic below:


Bug says this really comes in handy when you're too scared to go outside to feed the dog at night. So, even though his project probably stretched the perimeters of our history assignment expectations, it was just too cute not to accept!
