Unit 1 Lesson 5: Ancient Chinese Dynasties

The Chinses Zodiac.
Did your kids share with you what animal they are?

Here's more of what we learned:

  • Quote: "Give me a place to stand and I will move the earth" -Archimedes
  • Greek Roots: Mono- one, Micro- small
  • Chart: Chinese Dynasties and what happened during their times
  • Archimedes: balanced a triangle on the tip of a pencil
  • Played pictionary

Keep reading Archimedes and the Door of Science- our big group book discussion/party will be Monday, November 5, at 7:00- everyone's invitied.
(Scholars need to have read the book in order to join in this awesome event!)




Thanks to Nate for showing us his parakeets and teaching us about them

 Abi Von will teach the class next week (about 10 min.)


  • Work on your goals!
  • Keep reading Archimedes and the Door of Science. This is not required, but you will probably enjoy it. Not only will you be smarter, but the book discussion will be more meaningful if you do. Reading as a family or with a parent or sibling is a great idea.
