We're taking a break from World War II (other than to discuss what Karol Wojtyla was doing at the time) in order to put together a scrapbook on Pope John Paul II. I have a number of pictures, articles and newspapers that I saved from 2005 (has it been two years already?)
And, for what's turning into a unit study, I'm pulling ideas from a number of other resources:
Alice's "John Paul II Memorial Notebooks" -- details can be found on this thread at 4Real
A wealth of links to ideas on this thread at 4Real ... you must check these out
Photographs in Witness to Hope, by George Weigel
Selections from The Poetry of John Paul II
And, I get to read The Jeweler's Shop (or, more accurately, I really, really hope to make time to read it. You know how that goes, fellow moms ....)
I'll also share with my girls this essay, which I wrote right after our beloved Papa left this earth.
Is this work?
Is this school?
Is this why I love the work of homeschooling?
