Gettysburg Address

This is Noah as Abe Lincoln!

Our History program this year is Year 3 from Tapestry of Grace.  We have recently finished learning about the early 1800's through the Civil War.  As TOG suggest we did a unit celebration.  He dressed up as Abraham Lincoln, and memorized the Gettysburg Address to "perform" for us.  I think he did a pretty good job of it.

Robot Museum!

Noah is very much into robots... He talks about them all the time.  He wants to make them, he wants them to do jobs for him.  He is constantly telling me about ideas he has for what his robots will do one day.  So, when I came across a pamphlet showing an opportunity to go to a Robot exhibit at a museum near us-- we just had to go. 
He loved this part!  Showing others "blueprints" -- Noah has drawn notebooks worth of blueprints of different robots.

Using the mechanical arm -- this was harder than one might think!

All in all, a successful field trip, where he learned cause and effect, what it takes to build robots, and a historical timelime of robots, to name a few.
