Missionary Study

We've been taking a little summer break for the month of July.  During that time, Sweet Potato has been working to catch up on Math and Cupcake has been working on finishing Unit 3 of Rod & Staff Reading.  Since she has 10 lessons to go, I decided to wait and start the new school year on August 13th.  Meanwhile, I've had this lapbook project I've been wanting to do since the beginning of LAST school year!  It's "Christian Missionaries to Know" from In the Hands of a Child.  At our local convention I had bought a pack that included the guide, answer key plus the lapbook itself and all the pages for it printed on colored paper!  So I only had to make a copy of those for my 2nd student.  We started it today and it is really nice.  We had a good discussion about all the different skills missionaries use, and that being a missionary doesn't always mean preaching.  I think this is a great transitional activity to get us ready to get back to a full load of school with C to G and a great review of ECC!
