If you enjoy doing Lapbooks with your kids, I highly suggest checking out the variety from Home School in the Woods. We recently received a digital copy of HISTORY Through the Ages Hands-on History Lap-Pak: U.S. Elections. The suggested age group for this particular pack is grades 3 – 8.
This Lap-Pak introduces your child to the United States presidential elections process through hands-on activities. It takes a brief look at the structure of the government and then goes into election process. The nice thing is it gives you a little bit of history as it was established as well. It also explains how the president is chosen.
History is one of our favorite subjects in this house. When looking at curriculum for history, I try to find ones that seem intriguing and involve hands on activities. Home School in the Woods has some really awesome projects for history. We are currently working on Project Passport World History Study: Ancient Egypt. You can spread this across 8 – 12 weeks. This particular project is for grades 3 – 8.
Today Dakota had his neurologist appointment. Things seem to be going well. We discussed the frequent headaches and of course nothing new I am hearing but chalk it up to stress. Sigh… Kinda of sick of hearing the word stress. We also talked about the tremors and he went over Dakota’s case before we came in and said that he does have a history of them and he would let our primary Doctor know what drugs we can treat him with. However we talked more about it and Dakota will always have tremors the good thing is they can’t hurt him. He will have good days and bad days. That’s ok! We decided for now to opt out of meds as we don’t know how long he would be on them or if this is a life thing. He was also very comfortable with the meds. Dakota is on a low dose of seizure meds so that was a plus to hear also. He told me to pull Dakota’s finger if I think he is having a seizure if he doesn’t respond we know it’s a seizure. I never knew that before so I learned something new. We will see him again in one year and we will then do an EEG. So that appointment was very positive.
