Physical Education is often overlooked in homeschool curriculum and would be welcome after a winter of being kept indoors. This study will encourage exercise through track and field events, spiritual instruction regarding our call to "run the race", while including the three "R's". It stars the champion of the Olympics and most importantly, of God, Eric Liddell. Are you ready to start? On your marks, get set, go!
Suggested Read Aloud Chapter Book: Eric Liddell ~ Something Greater Than Gold (Christian Heroes: Then & Now Series) by Janet & Geoff Benge
Picture Book Suggestions: Eric Liddell ~ Running for a Higher Prize (Heroes for Young Readers Series). Search the library for juvenile picture books about track and field, the Olympics, nutrition and stretching for children.
Study Suggestions: I would suggest reading together from the chapter book for approx. 1/2 hour a day and choose one picture book to read which corresponds to the lessons below. Have the children do some of the listed activities (or any you come up with) each day according to their abilities. Include all work separately in a notebook/binder or composition book for each child. By the end of a few weeks you will have a nice collection of "scrapbooks" to cherish as an educational keepsake.
