Since our main project for the month is to write a novel, we sort of take the rest of our November learning in tiny bites. Little tastes. A little daily math, lots of reading, and finally enjoying some cool weather. We'll be charting moon phases soon, and we are thrilled that Mankind: The Story of All of Us starts next week! We really enjoyed the U.S. series (a must have, I think), and we're currently rewatching and discussing the westward episode. But since we did our "heavy" learning back in early fall, now we're immersed in writing and taking little bites of whatever else looks tasty at the moment.

figure on her own that the duct tape wouldn't be stable like that.
But it was a much more valuable lesson learned on her own.
