Here, the kids are dramatizing a camel caravan across the Sahara Desert. Sam, below is the caravan leader with her salt "slabs" (just salt containers) loaded on her camel "coffee table w/ bean bag hump". And above Jake is a caravan raider who is ready to raid the caravan and steal the goods...
For "Week 3" (again we took longer than a week for this "week" in the KONOS Africa book) we focused on being stewards of all the work God has given us and working "as unto the Lord" in everything we do, whether chores or schoolwork or what have you. So, we had plenty of practice being hard workers with cheerful attitudes. We definitely will continue to work on this for a long time, including me! :) The other focus areas were Morocco, Bedouins, & camels.
but don't worry Leah is part of the Camel Corps that patrols the desert and lends aid to the caravans. Doesn't she look fierce in her leotard?! But either way she was successful in warding off the raider! She saved the day! Then they took turns playing the different parts.
We are now in the midst of Week 4 and I will post that when we are done. We technically already did Week 5 because I used that week for when we hosted our Geography Co-op (The Republic of the Congo) but we will revisit it again and go over the areas that we didn't get to since it was just for one day.
