It is unbelievable how fast the school year is flying by! The fifth and sixth graders have just wrapped up a couple of longer units in science and history. In science class, they have learned about the water cycle and the oceans. When you consider that only 3% of the world’s water is freshwater, and most of that is locked up in ice, we marvel at how God still provides us with enough water to carry out all of our regular life functions. Similarly, when we got to see the vastness and uniqueness of the ocean, we cannot help but be amazed at God’s creation. In history class, we have spent the past few weeks learning about Ancient Greece. It’s a great chance to see how even today, we are affected by the ideas they studied and came up with. Next time you see a fifth or sixth grader, ask them to list as many ways Washington DC is influenced by the Ancient Greeks and see how many they remember!
