Science: 5 Kingdoms of Living Things
Please send your kiddos tomorrow with their pictures to classify. If you aren't going to be in class with your child, and you think they may forget how to classify their pictures, I'd suggest writing on the back of them. :-) Some of the categories are tougher than other. For example: Plantae: Is it a Monocot/Dicot/Conifer? (If you don't know, don't worry. We'll make our best guess). Or Fungi/Protista/Monera (you may remember because you printed it off, but your child may not).
Remember that one of our stations will be a service project for Meals on Wheels and the homeless. Here's a list of what we'll need for our homeless care bags. Feel free to bring whatever you'd like to contribute from the list.
- Fruit /applesauce/pudding cups (with or without a plastic spoon)
- Chewy granola bars (Cereal bars tend to get crushed into mush)
- Assorted crackers or cookies
- Fruit snacks
- Beef Jerky (this is a favorite even though it’s hard to chew)
- Small bags of nuts or trail mix
- Hard candy like peppermints or butterscotch
- Bottled water
- Small package of baby wipes
- Lip balm
- Hand warmers
- Warm Socks
You can access the Rallyhood.com Calendar here to see what's coming up or to RSVP to upcoming events.
Memorization breeds curiosity. These past weeks, your children memorized broad outlines of the history of the multiple ancient societies. This will continue in the weeks to come. Learning a bit about the cultures that came before us awakens a curiosity about God’s great big world. In Challenge, they will continue weaving these tidbits into a larger understanding of the tapestry of world history, which will awaken new questions in them. They will continue to encounter these stories through Challenge literature and through world history texts like Francis Schaeffer’s How Should We Then Live? and Daniel Boorstin’s The Discoverers.

“But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the traditions that you were taught by us, either by our spoken word or by our letter.” 2 Thessalonians 2:13-15 (ESV)
