I suppose I ought to get last week’s post up before I write this weeks, huh? Here’s what we were up to.

We talked about how music is written and then interpreted by people who play or dance to it and then we listened to several versions of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” (the original, Over the Rhine’s version, the Rufus Wainwright one from Shrek, and KD Lang’s cover off the top of my head, there may have been another) and compared the tempo and pitch as well as which instruments were used in each version.
None this week. There was a weird overlap wherein we should be studying Mexico in Geography, but we are studying the Maya in History and I thought studying modern day Mexico at the same time would get confusing so we’re holding off until we’ve moved on to a new historical subject.
We planted beans in a cd case (idea credit). Ours haven’t grown quite enough to label yet, but I’ll post pics once they do.
And I think that covers last week. How are things in your homeschool?
