Foundations to Challenge
Throughout our history timeline, we have the unique opportunity to study important events from church history. This week, students will sing about U.S. Evangelist Billy Graham in the timeline. Take a few minutes at home this week to talk about Billy Graham's ministries and the lives that the Lord has changed through him. Who knows, one of your children may be called into life-changing ministry!

Research paper: In TWSS chapters 4 and 6 we started learning to work with non-fiction sources and combine multiple sources and topics using a fused outline. You and your student will build on those skills to write a research paper on a person from history. You will have a finished paper ready to and in when you come to class on week 22 (April 4).
Presentation: After the paper in finished, you and your student will use the information to created a 3-4 minute presentation, written in first person. Your student will memorize this presentation and present it dramatically as if they are the historical figure (think Night at the Museum,) for our final week (April 18) and our end of year celebration on April 26th. Historic dress and props are optional but encouraged.
