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.

Dolphin Unit Study Links & Helps

DOLPHIN UNIT STUDY LINKS & HELPS

My youngest had a choice of a mini unit study to do basically on her own and Dolphins is what she chose. She was thrilled doing this basically on her own each day.
She created a little dolphin note book, colored pictures and did little experiments to better understand dolphins.
This is a rough conglomeration of links that assisted Tabitha with her study.
Hope this adds to what you may be looking for in your study for dolphins.

Dolphins Communications:

COMMERSON'S DOLPHIN:cut.
Sonar Clicks click
"They produce whistles, creaks, chuffs, screams, squawks, pops, chirps– a whole assortment of sounds that scientists have labeled in any number of ways. We will talk more about the ins and outs of dolphin communication in future podcast episodes. Dolphins appear to use these communicative behaviors, vocalizations, physical contact, and postures, to express all sorts of things to each other. They can communicate their emotional state (anger, frustration, contentment, affection), but also convey information about their reproductive state, age, gender, etc. What’s more, dolphins, like many animals, can learn to read each other’s behaviors and communicative signals in order to coordinate activities like feeding on fish, or even just swimming together." Justin Gregg -  Dolphin Pod
Here is a  list of dolphin behaviors observed here at Dolphin Research Center: {The list is quoted directly from the center itself.}
"Arch: Bend head and tail ventrally.
Eyewhite display: Rolling eyes, showing the whites.
Flex: Bend head and tail dorsally.
Headwag: Rapid, side to side shaking of the head.
Play dead: Roll over submissively in the vicinity of another dolphin.
Snit: Sharp, sideways head jerk with closed or open jaws; may be accompanied by sound.*
*May indicate agitation or aggressive behavior."
