France weeks 14-15

 for art we used our Global art book again and made these silhouettes, not perfect, but not bad for an 8 year old, I think we may do this again sometime with Mom actually doing it all - So I have them for myself to keep.
 Molly made an Eiffel tower out of modeling clay
 More geography terms
 Fun facts about France and Flag facts
 John 3:15 in French
 and we did lots of cooking - we went ice skating with some friends and when we got back we made french hot chocolate

 another Global Art masterpiece, we maid decorative soap - I didn't have a double boiler so I thought we would try microwaving our soap pieces and well - not so mcuh, they ended up with a couple of shapes, we will see how they last in the tub.

 French Onion Soup

 French Bread, we also made French Toast for breakfast at Grandma's house.
 And Chocolate Mousse
While studying France we also had a mini Disney Movie Marathon - we watched Little Mermaid, Aristocats and Ratatouille  I also checked out some travel videos.  We started reading George Mueller and read about William Tyndale in our Hero Tales book.  I rented the Tourchlighters Video from Amazon on Demand to watch about Him.
