Homeschooling...Meets Primitive Arms?

I just have to say again, how much I love homeschooling :)

We are using Konos as the main curriculum for our family. We are currently in the 2nd Volume, learning about the character trait of Courage. The Bible lesson for today was about David and Goliath, and how even though David must have been terrified, he had the courage to stand up to Goliath with nothing more than a slingshot.

Yup, I said it...slingshot. We made slingshots in school today folks! :-) With these slingshots, the children were able to "touch" their Bible lesson, do math (estimating the average hits to the target with the different styles that the kids made) history, with the primitive arms, and phys. ed, by being outside shooting the slingshots.

One more time.... I Love Homeschooling! :-)

(We will also be studying the Revolutionary War during this unit...a perfect topic after our trip to Boston!)
