Our homeschool week - Zz is for . . .

In our homeschool this week . . . 

Reading, Learning, and Exploring 

We looked up New Zealand on the map and we read about it in the Children's Atlas by Reader's Digest 
We learned about the population - did you know there are about 4,115, 771 people in New Zealand and that there are 20 x that many sheep? Yup. Lots of sheep. They do a lot of farming, and fishing.

Zz is for sheep ZONE 

We read about their volcanoes and whale sharks and so much more -like ooZy volcanoes.

Zz is for Zacchaeus 

In our Master Books - A is for Adam book - we read about: 

Zz is for Zip - how quickly Jesus will return to take back His own- those whose names are written in the Lambs book of life. (which reminds us of all those lambs in New Zealand) It gives us a chance to pray for those around the world when we realize Jesus died for them too. 

Zz is for Zacchaeus - we sang the song about Zacchaeus . . . was a wee little man, a wee little man was he - he climbed up in a sychamore tree to see what he could see - Jesus said, "Zacchaeus, you come down, for I'm going to your house today." Luke 19:5

In our life this week . . . 

Zz is for Zany AdventureZ - 

We went to the Disney Wilderness campground

Then we Zigged on over to Legoland FL for Homeschool day 

And then Zagged on over to the MOSI Science Center in Tampa 
Zz is for Zoom - virtually to the International Space Station 
The kids did simulated real jobs - just like the astronauts do - even driving a rover on the moon 

Our AdventureZ weren't over yet - we headed for the FL Aquarium 

Zz is for Zealous - the boys worked on their photography and were really excited about it! The shots above were some of theirs. 
We learned that even the fish need to catch some Zz's 

And I'm now in recovery mode . . . . . Zzzzzzzzzzz Zzzzzzzzzz
