Week 3...already. Seems we are flying through this book!

Here are the We Love the Prairie Primer blog links for this week...

Other topics touched on in this week's reading include:
Chicken Pox
Indian sign language
methods of travel (Indian trails, etc)
Indian ceremonial headdresses
panthers and lions
Oak, sycamore and cottonwood trees

Projects, like making moccasins, beaded necklaces, making salt rising bread, stewed dried fruit, bean porridge and more!

Our reading schedule will be similar to other weeks:
Monday chapters 14-15
Tuesday chapters 16-17
Wednesday chapters 18-19
Thursday chapters 20-21
Friday is a catch-up day this week ;o)

We will be working with out Handbook of Nature Study text this week and discuss the Oak, Sycamore and Cottonwood trees, adding pictures and notes to our nature book. We will also be adding drawings and notes on wolves, beaver, fox, muskrat and mink, and panthers using our Illustrated Encyclopedia of Animal Life set (probably my favorite 'old' set of books here!).
