I am so excited that we will be doing Sonlight Core 5 : Eastern Hemisphere this fall!!! Ever since I first saw it in that glossy catalogue four or five years ago, I knew we wanted to use this core someday. This will be our 6th year HSing, first year of Sonlight. Since we need some hands-on to supplement our reading, I will try to post any hands-on supplemental schedules as they are made.
This is my SL 5 art schedule using Global Art: Activities, Projects, and Inventions from Around the World by MaryAnn F. Kohl and Jean Potter. Most of the projects I chose are of the higher difficulty level for my rising 5th grade, but there are many simpler projects inluded in the book. I think some of them could even be done by preschoolers with a little help from Mom.
Here is the Global Arts schedule:
Soft Coral Watercolor (Fiji) p 145
Siapo Cloth (Samoa) p 147
Mimi Rug (Aboriginal) p 140
Dreamtime Painting (Aboriginal) p 141
Stone Mosaic (Israel) p 61
Clay jewelry (Egypt) p 18
Ivory Carving(Congo) p 23
Bambulina Hanging(South Africa) p 28
