Thank you,

Our Lady and Astronomers

If you've ever watched the original Iron Chef series from Japan, (we love it even with subtitles,) then you know that exciting moment when the announcer says:  "The Iron Chef has four offerings today," and then we get to see what he has made.  Today I can be a bit like my favourite show and say, "Kalei has two resource offerings today!"

Shell from Thinking Love, No Twaddle has been such a busy little bee and has lots to share with us to pass on to other homeschooling families.

Our Lady
Our first offering today is a poetry lesson based on the poem, "Ballade to Our Lady of Czestochowa" by Hilaire Belloc.  This six page lesson includes the poem and additional notes on Hilaire Belloc, St. Hildagard of Bingen and Our Lady of Czestochowa.  Also included are two beautiful notebooking pages that would be beautiful to copy out the poem or write a bit about Our Lady, St. Hildagard or the author.

 Download this Little Lesson on the Ballade to Our Lady of Czestochowa from Shell's Little Lessons page now.

Our second resource is a Little Lesson on Father Pietro Angelo Secchi SJ, astronomer and sunspot spotter.  This is a seven page resource that highlights another Catholic scientist who lived from 1818-1878.  He made massive steps in forwarding our knowledge of the cosmos while serving as a shining example of steadfast devotion to the faith even in the eyes of political opposition to the church.  The lesson includes a packed text of info including a timeline of the author's life and accomplishments, discussion questions, notebooking sheet and a chance to have some hands-on simple, science fun.

Download this Little Lesson: Father Pietro Secchi SJ, Astronomer and Sunspot Spotter from Shell's science lesson page now.

More resources on the way tomorrow. :)
