Duct Tape Knight

Sep 27, 2010

I was just checking my email and saw that CurrClick has a free booklet for making shields out of duct tape. It is an excerpt from The Battle Book: Warfare by Duct Tape. Of course, I downloaded it and know that after the boys get a hold of it, they will want to make more stuff from the whole book. This will give us an excuse to get some of the really cool colored duct tape at the store. Maybe I'll make my very own pink or purple shield so I can join in the fun.

Police K9 Unit Study

Sep 25, 2010

I don't do unit studies very often but an opportunity presented itself and I can't let it pass by. My husband is a police officer, so the topic is near and dear to our hearts. One of his co-workers told me about a public K-9 demonstration coming up and as I was passing the information along to other homeschoolers, I decided to look for some related educational sites. I found some really good ones and decided that next week we will do a unit study on police officers and their canine counterparts.
