Martin Luther King Jr. & Chocolate Study

Today was Martin Luther King Jr. Day & the boys weren't clear on who he was. SO we sat down & had a little study on him. What better day than today, right? Believe it or not it fit in well with our Civil War studies. The boys are getting a very good understanding about how people have been mistreated through history. We started our Chocolate Study today too. We are using an Amanda Bennett study. The boys were practically DROOLING as we learned about how chocolate is made and the history of Milton Hershey. He was a very interesting and generous man. I have a new found admiration for him. 

Bugs doing his MLK worksheets from Enchanted Learning.

Princess was busy coloring.

The boys are both working hard.

Writing information always seals it into their minds much better than talking alone.

Princess helped me sort the crayon bin.  

We filled this entire bag with broken crayons.  We are saving them for a craft.

Princess made a caterpillar the other day with Sweet Pea.  She adores it.

She likes to take it everywhere she goes.  It was part of her 'Letter C' lesson.

The boys with their MLK booklets & the book we read today.

Now to work on our Chocolate Study.

What a delicious book!

This is a great book.  Full of information & fun to read.

We're looking forward to Day #2 and learning even more!
