It’s a used set, so many of the solutions are no longer full, but there is still a ton here that we will be able to use. I mean, there are beakers, test tubes, test tube clamps, scales, glass thermometers….I’m still in shock as to how much we were just given. Praise God, Hallelujah!
For this unit close-up I organized it by chapters. I also found The Tolkien Society’s website to have a lot of free guides and helpful information including chapter outlines, vocabulary lists for each chapter, in-depth explanations of runes and even of Anglo-Saxon Old English that Tolkien uses in the story.
I wanted to have my son be able to answer questions that involved more critical thinking, and Joy Sexton’s unit is a great resource for that. I don’t think I’ll have him do this for every single chapter (it’s a lot!), but he needs some practice going into the book and formulating strong answers to questions.
This unit is also good, but I am mainly using it for the character chart:
Code Academy for all of the above plus Python and he will be starting Ruby On Rails (I have no idea).
Harvard’s Undergraduate Computer Science Course (CS50) – He is taking this alongside his dad, but they are doing it separately. My husband helps him, but it is the same course Harvard’s undergrads use. You can take it for actual credit and pay money for it, or you can just do it to learn for free.He’s already made a few small programs and it baffles me when I hear him talking about it!
Putting it All Together
I labeled all of my picture and non-fiction books and stuck them in baskets. You can find the general labels for free HERE.
