This week we began a four week study of World War I. I admit, I didn't really understand what this war was about, or really know very many facts about it. I have learned a lot in my planning and preparation for this unit! I'm so thankful that my kids will hopefully grow up with a better understanding of the events and chronology of history, how things fit together, and God's plan in it all, thanks to Tapestry! :)
We did a big fun project this week: we build a model of a trench and played trench warfare!
Our trench was not dug in the ground, but we pretended it was. :)
The kids spent several hours drawing and coloring on the inside walls.
HUGE imaginations at work!
Finished product: Luke's medical aid hut.
Kiryn drew pictures and postcards from home on th ewall.
Paul bought Luke this belt in Leh, India on a trip once, and it looks very similar to the WWI soldier belts. Helmet and gun, not so authentic. :)
I love their expressions, they really look like soldiers!
Such fun and memories made this week! Oh, and we did some actual work too. : ) Here's a map of the Allies territory vs. the Central Powers.
