About Me

My photo

When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

CLOTHING & FASHION UNIT STUDY

FELECIA’S CLOTHING & FASHION UNIT STUDY

   I gave my girls a choice for a short time to do a unit of study on something they would particularly like. My 13 year old choose period clothing. Of course this could have lasted for quite possibly the entire year, she had to limit herself greatly.
Felecia designed a lovely folder and aligned it with ladies of old in their period attire.
She also checked out several books and magazines to assist her as well.
Here is a basic rough out line of links and directive. Hope this helps you as you too learn about period clothing!


PERIOD CLOTHING

1.) Hold a fashion show,
2.) Create a new outfit
3.) Mural or collage from magazines.
4.) Clothing tags
5.) A map of the country where the clothing was made.
6.)  Five facts about the country.
7.)  Descriptions of the clothing the tags originated from
