Teaching July


We had a few fantastic “special days” studies last July.  Below are those special day posts.  Each one has the links to the teaching resources we used.  I’ve checked the links and they seem to  be working.

Ramadan, 2014 began in June and continues until  July, 28 with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr. .(This past winter, our local homeschool group hosted a holiday history fair.  B chose to come back to this study for his presentations.  It’s a very good study.)  https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2013/07/12/studying-ramadan/

International Joke Day – July 1   https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2013/07/01/just-joking/

This was our study following the 4th of July, it would have been better if we had done it first with the fireworks display to follow.  We learned a lot and found it interesting.  We’ll be visiting topic again this year.  https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2013/07/05/fireworks/                   We learned about the Liberty Bell as part of our July studies last year, too.  The resources for that study were awesome!  https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2013/07/08/the-liberty-bell/

  • John Quincy Adams – July 11, 1767

We haven’t yet made any decisions yet about our July 2014 special day learning, but I’m pretty sure ICE CREAM will make our list (more than once)!  And, we may have a go with the July 24th unschool holiday, “Learn Nothing Day”, though I don’t know how that would be possible.  Here’s the “Special Days in July” list for 2014  https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2014/06/26/special-days-in-july/

Happy July learning,
