Winter/Iditarod Study Pictures....Finally!


I am finally getting my pictures together for the winter study we recently completed.  We had a great time!


We started off by reviewing some of the winter themed books in Five In A Row. We looked back at our most recent studies: OWL MOON and THE VERY LAST FIRST TIME, along with KATY AND THE BIG SNOW from last fall.  What wonderful memories these unit studies create...


We watched so many movies!  Snow Buddies, Snow Dogs, Balto, Balto 2, Iron Will and a recent recommendation, Eight Below, just to name a few.  Iron Will is probably one of my very, all-time favorite movies!  I loved sharing that story with my children.


Our first lapbook experience was an A+!  It was a lot of fun and brought some extra interest to the study.  I'm sure they look simple compared to others, but we were more than satisfied with the boys' efforts.


These types of studies are such an effective way to learn.  Most days it doesn't even feel like school!


Here are the pictures:

A sampling of the materials we used.


The boys with our Iditarod Race Map at the beginning of the race.  Trent drew most of the map.


And here's a shot of Cade playing "weatherman".


Our finished, labeled map at the end of the race:


Now for the lapbooks.  First, Cade:






And Trent's:





Now that spring is in the air, the boys are ready to concentrate on a warm weather study.


Personally, I can't get enough of Alaska!
