{Classical Conversations} Cycle 3 | Week 8

We’re really simplifying this year. You can see our Game Plan here. Also check out our U.S. Capitals State Tour.

Here are activities I found when we did Cycle 3 last time. In additional to the books listed, I also suggest checking out the books associated with this week’s Geography here.


History: Henry Clay and the Missouri Compromise

This was not an easy topic about which to find good resources!

Intro: Youtube videos on the Missouri Compromise and Henry Clay.

This PBS webcast is a great intro as well and can be used with this lesson plan.

Science: Circulatory System

Remember that Week 12 also has to do with blood so whatever you don’t finish this week you can postpone until then!

Intro: Inside Ralphie (Magic Schoolbus) or KidsHealth.org video

  1. Play the Circulation Game.
  2. Make blood.  (Possible accompanying worksheet).
  3. Possible assessment (if you’re into that stuff).
