Read two chapters of Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH
Read Catherine Vos Story Bible
Read Naming Liberty, a picture book that tells parallel stories of the creation of the Statue of Liberty and a family of Jewish Russian immigrants.
Got online and looked up pictures of the interior of Lady Liberty, found out whether you can still go up into the crown (you can't, since 9/11).
Next we looked up pictures of the sculptor's other sculptures...
Next we talked about the NY City skyline and looked up the world's tallest buildings...
Then watched YouTube videos of 9/11
Researched who the terrorists were and why they attacked the Twin Towers

SD finished fifth Harry Potter book and wrote paragraph on why the series is so appealing

Mr. D started first Harry Potter book; continued The Battle for the Castle; finished paragraph from Monday:

My mom, my brother and I are reading a really good book called Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. What's exciting is that some rats have a big secret but nobody knows their secret. Mrs. Frisby is the only one who finds out. I'm really glad my mom picked out the most amazing book ever!

Both boys helped carry in lumber for basement construction project; observed the beginning of the process
