Week 6: New York, Nine Pins, Tobacco, and Birds

I'll sum this week up quickly.  In history, we read about the Dutch people who settled New Amsterdam, which became New York when the English took over and named it after the Duke of York.  We also learned about the success that tobacco plantations brought to Virginia and that's when slaves were first used in North America. We found a few good, short videos on You Tube about tobacco and cotton plantations, and slavery.

We set up a game of Nine Pins, a popular game in Colonial times, and played a few rounds.

We made a bird feeder:

Katie couldn't resist hanging around the tree!

We will spend part of Monday back peddling in science to make sure all pages are in the science notebooks.  I just noticed we missed a couple things.  I haven't been feeling well, so it was hard to accomplish everything!  Well, let's be honest.  It's hard to accomplish it all on any given week!

On Saturday, we went to a Pumpkin Festival and the girls got to paint their own canvas.  Saturday Art Class!!!  They did a great job!
