This is a year-long, two semester class. Each unit 5 weeks in length. We will be using the fun "Just Me & My Thoughts" journal in this class throughout the year. Each week we will jump into hands-on-learning of each wonder-filled topic, as we create fun (& sometimes messy!) projects, overcome obstacles & meet challenges, & grow in our love for truth, the wonder all around us & for one another. Come join the fun!
