Prior to our last visit in Germany, 3Gs labeled each German "state" (lands). So, in preparation for our World War Two study, I asked the to map the states in Italy. I hope that while they read about where battles took place there will be some comprehension of the terrain and location. This map was completed with some identification of physical land forms as well. It was done by G3, and I'm so glad that he wrote clearly about the one place he thoroughly enjoyed visiting. It was after our 2009 visit to Rome that he accepted a general interest in learning Italian. I do hope he continues to learn more about it (and not hate the Latin study either).

Love what you do even when you don't like it all the time, especially when you get to invest in what matters for eternity :-)

The main win with the lesson plans I bought for physics study was the use of Tiner's The World of Physics. The main deterrence to the plans were the lack of an answer key, which disquieted my troops at times to the nth degree. SERIOUSLY! We've been adding notebook pages to sections in the Elemental Science Grammar Stage Physics study from four years ago which did have defined expectations and was comforting as well as thorough. But, because the logic stage materials won't be available until this fall, I went with this option instead of a total text book curriculum that is popular within conservative homeschooling circles. The final transition for these 3Gs is the issue that I'm not doing demonstrations anymore as I did in the grammar stage science materials. Each of my logic stage students must complete their own experiments and writing individually. Incredible amounts of weeping and gnashing of teeth have been exhibited (not really), but each is "owning" their study with differing levels of interest depending on the sections in our curriculum to date. So, I'm hoping with the upcoming study of magnetism and then light that there is better participation and more epiphanies that take place (or at least less tween angst).
