We’ve been having a blast with this. I made up a template and each week will uses a few words from the torah portion and fill it out. For Lorien (my 5 year old) I used 10 words and just repeated them. for Brianna I chose harder words, for high-schoolers we’re using hebrew words. It’s been fun to race each other as well. 🙂 (click link below picture)
Study some cities destroyed by fire: Pompeii, this site is very extensive, but done from a biblical perspective, very interesting. The Great Chicago Fire, this site was put together by a museum with lots of first hand material.

“Abram sat in the heat of the day” Study temperature, farenheit, celcius, boiling point, freezing point, etc.
Begin to teach your children the blessing of babies. Do a bible study on what YHVH says about babies. For those interested, I have included a link to a slideshow of babies in the womb, to show development. It is hosted at a medical site and is very tasteful, but, as always, check first to make sure you are comfortable. Also, read Psalm 139:13-18
Study blindness and some of its causes, such as retinal detachment, optical nerve damage, and infections. Learn about how blind people function in every day life.

Take a look at life at the seashore. What plants and animals live there?
Make homemade bread! Serve it with cottage cheese, a type of curds.
