According to Special Days in August (http://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2014/07/27/special-days-in-august-2/), the 26th is Mother Teresa’s birthday. This means that she will be our study and timeline addition of the day. Below are the online resources I found for us as we learn about this wonderful lady and perhaps one of the greatest and most inspiring humanitarians of modern history.
A short biography for kids http://www.pitara.com/magazine/people/online.asp?story=16
Worksheet Printables – http://www.schoolexpress.com/fws/cat.php?id=2655
The Life of a Healer a video biography – http://www.watchmojo.com/video/id/10485/
A wonderful selection of quotes – http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/m/mother_teresa.html
And because Mother Teresa will be such an inspiration to us, we can’t complete the study without trying to feed the poor and hungry. We’ll cover all the rest of our subjects (math, geography, science, art, grammar) through this site today http://freerice.com/category
Just in case you don’t know about about the Free Rice site…
To simply explain, you play educational quiz games (lots of subjects to choose from) and for every correct answer you can collect rice. Real rice that goes to real people! The questions start off easy and get harder and harder. There is an option to join that would keep track of progress and your place in the games so each time you visit you may play from where you last left off. Or you can just play without sign up/sign in. Also, they offer a couple of printables and lesson plans (I liked the creative writing idea).
