Leaving Egypt to Walk to the Desert

We have finished up learning about Egypt and have started our journey into the desert!  The boys had fun learning about life on the Nile River.  Here are a couple pictures of them with a Nile River collage. They built pyramids and homes with their blocks.  We then added animals that live in/along the water.

Each week we "Draw and Caption" (this one is missing the caption) 1 of the main topics.  Here is JD's pyramids...apparently on one of the few rainy days? LOL


Gym Class has started up again!!  Boys are taking Hockey/Skating Lessons




Here they are making Challah bread to remind us that while walking the desert for 40 years God provided by dropping mana from the sky!  If you want to give it a try (because it was actually really good!) here is the recipe we used (cut it in half):

So that's pretty much it.  We have covered Moses and the 10 Commandments and the Golden Calf and should be entering the Promised Land soon :)  I can't believe we have already covered 8 weeks! Next week is the last week of Unit 1 (we have 4 total).  OH!  Here are a couple books we have read that they really enjoyed!
