We've undertaken a little project to make FHE a little more engaging and impactful for the boys. Our first "stunt" was to teach about Noah and about the role of prophets and then visit the Noah's Ark Exhibit at the Skirball Museum. If you haven't been or seen photos, you can check it out here. The kids had a great time and the only hiccup was Christian's fear that our house wouldn't be safe through the flood. We assured him it would be there when we returned.
Week 1: Light and dividing of day and night -- Picnic and watch the sunset at the Santa Monica Pier
Week 2: Creating the firmament and Heaven -- Still at a loss on this one
Week 3: Dividing the land and the sea -- Tide pools
Week 4: Plant life -- Huntington Gardens
Week 5: Lights in the Firmament -- Griffith Observatory (maybe combine with Week 2)
Week 6: Sea Life -- Long Beach Aquarium or Marine Animal Rescue
Week 7: Animal Life -- LA Zoo or Natural History Museum
Anyway, this may be too activity heavy, but we'll see if we can have some fun with it. Look forward to your thoughts.
