Water Week!

A couple weeks ago, Peter chose to do water week (in lieu of whatever I had planned for homeschooling that week). We took a walk along the Erie Canal with my parents and happened to be there in time to see two boats go through the lock! 





He pulled her most of the way back!
For our unit study, we sang 15 Miles on the Erie Canal, found the local bodies of water on a map (river, lake, canal, bay all in this county!), learned about states of matter, and read some good books, including Splash! Poems of Our Watery World (Levis), Ice is Nice! All about the North and South Pole (Worth), and A River of Words: The Story of William Carlos Williams (Bryant/Sweet). Our memory verse was Matthew 14:29.
