E.C.C.: We started learning about Canada this week.  We read some facts about Canada in Children's Atlas of Our World.  We labeled the provinces of Canada and completed our flag worksheets.  We watched a short video on the northern lights.  We also watched a short youtube video about Cananda that I found on a list that another homeschooler recommended, but did not care for some of the language and attitude of the host so we will not be watching any more of those.  In science we read about long term changes, food chains, scavengers and decomposers.  The art activity was to do an Ivory soap carving.

Science: We started the chapter on the Moon.
