1. the study of the human body. This will be a multi-week study. We will start with the brain (I think) and work our way through, though I might do a basic over view first of the different areas of the body first (aka skin, bones, muscles etc). I bought a few books to help me with this, as well as we have a good book of the human body here at home.
2. the study of Canada. We will do some of the native stuff, then work at immigration, and then he'll need to interview his grandparents on how they came over from Holland. I've been thinking on how I want to do this when Homeschool Freebie of the Day sent me a link to a music education site called Keeping Score. This of course got me thinking on the importance of learning some of the music of the time periods as well.
Throughout these studies we will learn reading and math and such like. But rather than try to have monthly themes, I figured it would work better to have an over-arching theme which would be more doable in the long run. :)
