Homeschool Social Studies Fair

The Social Studies Fair is always Blaze's big school project. He puts quite a bit of time and work into his display, so there was some panic when this year's fair was scheduled for Nov. 18, instead of late January or February like it has been in past years. We both spent a lot of time on this project, me finding the materials and information and Blaze writing fact cards, coloring, cutting, and even baking.  We finished everything, except the baking, with only one day to spare.

The topic he chose this year was Vikings.

Fresh baked barley crackers.
I couldn't find any barley flour in our local stores, so ended up grinding my own using the food processor.

We thought we were running late, but ended up being the first ones to arrive and set up at the Social Studies Fair.

All of the kids made amazing projects and most of them got up on the stage in front of the group to do presentations. Blaze isn't comfortable doing public speaking, but he was very good at answering questions as individuals looked at his display.
