Superstitions

 

Even though we’re in the middle of Summer craziness and busyness this week, I  thought that we wouldn’t “do school” today.   But…

I’m wowed by the resources and links I have saved up for a study on superstitions do use on a Friday the 13th.  Surely we’ll be able to make a little time to learn about superstitions because this stuff is INTERESTING!  Below are the sites and resource I found to share with you just in case you can make time for a little superstition too.

To keep this study in the right perspective we’ll include 1 Timothy 4:7 with this study.  “ People tell silly stories that don’t agree with God’s truth. Don’t follow what these stories teach. But teach yourself to be devoted to God.

And finally some music, which my kids will consider ancient history, but saying such a thing may bring them some bad luck!
