Ben Franklin

Last week was Benjamin Franklin week. We learned that Benjamin Franklin went to the same school as daddy did, Boston Latin. He also was the very first postmaster, daddy works for the post office too. Jadyn and Jesse said that daddy is just like Benjamin Franklin! They were suddenly interested in learning more =)
We made our own versions of Poor Richard's Almanac and the kids had fun repeating the sayings over and over and over and over again.

We also learned about the different types of rock and touched briefly on erosion and volcanoes.

Volcanic rock was very interesting to the kids and we also watched a fun video on volcanoes and how they erupt. Jesse was rooting for the lava to destroy things while Jadyn was yelling at things to get out of the way.
We had a fun week....stay tuned for George Washington and how the seasons change!
