Welcome to the blog of Lighthouse Christian Homeschool!

This blog serves three purposes:

1. To have a place to 'jot down' the day to day happenings in our homeschool for our support teacher to see, in hopes that some of the things we do will fit nicely into the provincial learning outcomes.

2. To keep my family up to date on what we're 'up to'.

3. To glorify God.

So on that note, come on in!

Bridge Building # 1

This term Joshua, Rebecca, and Caleb have been learning about materials and structures. Our main focus in this unit has been on bridges, so it only made sense that we create some of the bridges we have learned about. The first bridge we made was the Cable Stayed Bridge. Here are photos of the different steps we did to complete our bridge.
Rebecca put together the pieces of the road bed
 We painted the landscape
 Christine pitched in too
The boys studied the instructions so that we could get it just right.
 Rebecca got the 'cables' ready
 Caleb anchored the ends of the bridge on shore
Then it was time to attach the string cables

Yay, we did it!
