Hello STRNGNGRNDED,
You mentioned reading a book on the Amish. Could you tell me the title? I have always wanted to know more about them but haven't had much luck finding books in our library.

Blessings,
Anita in GA

Who knew there were 26 original British American colonies?! (not 13 as taught in schools)

Ds asked me today why God named Adam and Eve their names. Interesting. I'd never thought about it. We looked up the meanings of the names in his Bible.
Adam means red and Eve means life.

Anyone know the answer to this question?

Absolutely nothing wrong with Biblical learning.
What are GloFish? And I take it the fluorescence is natural, but not natural to the fish?

Today ds and I learned about eponyms.

This is science, not biblical. I learned GloFish were bred to help detect environmental pollutants. Scientist added natural fluorescence genes to the fish to create them.

Did you know it took as long as a century for some cathedrals to be built?

Thank you for sharing that Ali and I'm glad you did! It's wonderful. And this thread is about what was learned today, not necessarily trivia or whatever. I have just been posting random stuff ds and I have been learning during school. And like you we also do Bible study during our school.

Thank you again for sharing. =)

Oh Melody, thank you! My pastor would go around the room after Bible Study and ask what did you learn and you could answer or pass. This is something I will respond to when I can. We all learned yesterday that the Bible Study is something we are having trouble finding where it includes all of the family so maybe we should host our own.

I know that is not what you are looking for and I will post what you are looking for, but this was such a lightbulb moment for us, then to see this! Wow!

Camels feet spread when they step in the sand so their feet don't sink. (sort of like elephants feet)

I'm reading a book on Amish and they apparently score better than public school peers. (no surprise right? But I wonder how they compare to homeschool scores)
Also, did you know they are listed as high school dropouts in statistics because they only school until the 8th grade?

When I was in high school, an elderly man in a wheel chair often met me after school on my way home. He would ask me, "what did you learn in school today?"
The sad truth was I often said nothing, because that was the truth. I tried really hard though to give him something, so we could have a conversation.

The other day I was reading a book "American Women and World War II and it had an excerpt from a magazine for women about recycling and what each item would do. Ex: a flat iron would yield enough steel for two helmets. Bones, because they could be made into glue, glue makes glycerin; glycerin makes explosives.

My son and I found this to be so fascinating. (it's not at all what we're studying, but it's a little history trivia.) Now this elderly man inspired me to try and learn something new every day, no matter how small.

What did you and/or your kids learn today? Please share~
