Home-schooling has allowed us to do several projects. Two of our favorites:
1. We created a wildflower garden. Bonus we had lots of butterflies come to visit. A good reference book for this project is "Wildflowers of Mississippi" by S. Lee Timme.
2. We joined Friends and Flags. We learned a lot preparing our packet about the US, our partner countries were Israel and Belarus and they did a wonderful job educating us about their countries. One of the things we learned was that Kosciusko, MS was named for a famous Belarusian, Tadeusz Kosciuszko. (Important note at one time Belarus was part of Poland)
