Hollidaysburg Homeschool Co-op
One Clay at a Time Grades 4-12
We’ll be working with a different clay each class. I’ll demonstrate a few techniques, then the student can decide whether to make the featured project or one of their own choosing. Students may bring in items to make impressions for some classes. We will make and bake a couple clays, so students will need to be able to follow safety instructions for handling hot items. Tentative clays will include: Eraser clay, Cold Porcelain, Polymer clay, Air Dry clay, and Paper clay.
Introduction to Greek Language and Culture Grades 3-8
Fr. Issac D.
1-2 hours of homework per week
Students will be introduced to the culture which laid the foundation for all of Western Civilization. We will also learn the Greek alphabet along with some basic language.
Can You Build It? Grades 1-3
Straws, spaghetti, popsicle sticks, pom poms, and marshmallows….these are some of the materials students will use to create towers, bridges, and more. We will also learn about Rube Goldberg and build some chain reaction models using Legos and recycled items.
Deal With It Grades 5-12
Let’s develop math skills, logic, critical thinking, problem solving, and strategy while having fun! Each week students will learn to play popular card games such as Uno, Exploding Kittens, and Phase 10. No experience necessary….instructions will be supplied!
***For best gameplay results, a strong reading background is suggested.
Simple Cooking Grades 3-12
We will use various foods, tools, and techniques as we learn about food preparation. The class will be demonstration style, with some hands-on involvement and food sampling. Most of the preparation will not involve heat, and might include things like eggs, smoothies, drinks, dips, no bake desserts, and fruit recipes. Please let us know if there are food allergies so we can plan accordingly.
