For Week 3 in RPC Homeschool, I continued do the regular, English, History, Math, and Science. Here’s what I did over the week.
I continued reading Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates. I also wrote a short essay based around Spring.
It was beautiful day in Spring. A brother and a sister were playing in the April Showers. They were splashing in the puddles that were slowly growing due to the heavy rain. Rains were the normal around April and May, and enjoying the warm breezes, the cold rain, the beautiful flowers, and the greenest, richest of grasses.
I wrote about Ancient Egypt.
Ancient Egypt was during sometime when Egypt was being developed. At first, Egypt was separated into two kingdoms. However, Pharaoh Menes ended up uniting the two kingdoms, making Egypt one whole kingdom. These chains of events make up the Old Kingdom, which only lasted the first 3-6 dynasties. The Egyptians started building pyramids for pharaohs, but the first true pyramid was built by Pharaoh Senefure. Most pharaohs were buried in the Valley of Kings, some were buried in tombs that were built with 6 layers: Mastaba first, then the other layers. There were 3 intermediate periods: The old kingdom. The second intermediate period, and the third intermediate period. The Second intermediate period lasted 14-17 dynasties, and the third lasted about 21-25 dynasties.
We reviewed basics about division, division word problems, we also studied a bit on prime numbers.
For Science, we studied glaciers, mountain ranges, and wind and desert erosion.
