Wee Gillis

Last week we wrapped up Wee Gillis.

We used printables from HomeschoolShare for Jack's notebook.

One day we looked for differences in these two similar pictures. (Our library has a DVD of Wee Gillis and they did a good job of recreating these pictures in it!)

One morning Jack tried oatmeal, just like Wee Gillis. He really had to psych himself up to take a bite, though!

Later the same morning, Jack spotted a deer on our way into town! We thought maybe that meant he was suited to be a highlander.

We read The Magic Bagpipe, which is a story about a boy going to a piper competition. We were going to make this cute bagpipe craft, but life got in the way.

Breathe In, Breathe Out is a nice simple book explaining how your lungs work.

I found an experiment for testing your lung capacity in the FIAR archives, so we gave that a try!

Of course, we also went to the Scottish Festival during our time with Wee Gillis. To celebrate, the Golden Driller was outfitted with the world's largest kilt, but when we went to see it in person, they had already taken it down!
