We are doing a study on Elections, since this is an election year.
I printed out two blank USA maps.
We titled one Democratic Primary and the other Republican Primary.
When a state holds a primary/caucus we write in the state who won.
It is teaching them to find the states, (Mom isn't very good at this and must cheat! :))
We got many books out at the library and are busy reading them.
I surprised my dh the other night, he stated that no-one has held office more than 2 times, I was so excited that I knew he was wrong. He is the one who is always correct!!
Do you know who it was???
Good for you if you did!! I didn't till I was reading with the kiddos.
It was Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He was elected president in 1932, 1936, 1940, and again in 1944.
That is why the amendment was added in 1951, a person can be elected to only two terms as president!!
Then my dh said he didn't know what the difference was between a primary and a caucus. So we learned about that!!
I love when we can connect everyday life to some lessons.
Dylan is also doing highlights "Which Way USA". He loves the puzzles. You are doing puzzles to decide who is going to be in the Which Way Hall of Fame, what object will be on display in the Which Way Museum, and where will the Which Way Supermax Movie be made?It has you do puzzles to eliminate 5 choices. It lists 6 people famous for that state. I have Dylan choose from those 6 people, 3 he would like to learn more about. I bought the states package at "homeschoolestore" and use the state sheets. I will try to upload some soon. It is just so much fun when things come together.
Today, I was feeling under the weather. We did a few subjects. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow and we can get back on schedule.
Love ya all
