Book Study: Out of the Dust Week 7 Overview and Celebration

We're Done!  This has been a great season of learning about The Dust Bowl, The Depression and the 1930's.  I hope each one of our students has taken something special and memorable from this study.

In class we completed the Overview from Progeny Press.

To celebrate the completion of our study, we gathered for dinner and movie at our home.  We ate roasted chicken and potatoes, salad, bread, candied carrots (Kit Kittredge style), apples (of course, since they were a memorable part of our study) and many desserts.

I'm sure by now, you can all guess what we watched for our movie...The Grapes of Wrath.  The perfect movie to finish off a study on the Dust Bowl.  Henry Fonda looked so young!

What a great evening and a great study!

The next study we have is Number The Stars by Lois Lowry.  Until then...Read On!
