Week One with My Father's World: Exploring Countries and Cultures

We had a great first week of school with our new curriculum: Exploring Countries and Cultures by My Father's World. These first couple of weeks are an introduction to world geography and cultures. We also brought in a new science curriculum by Apologia. The kids love it. They each keep a notebook and do plenty of experiments which keeps them engaged and awake. Best of all, it's God-honoring and easy to implement.  Here are a few pics from our first week:
