Come visit Death Island

For those not in the know- I homeschool my demented children. The title of demented is well-deserved, as you shall soon see.

The curriculum that we use is Moving Beyond the Page. At the end of each unit, there is a big final project. This unit was on the land and for his final project he had to create a tri-fold brochure about an Island that he created. he had to include landforms, weather, location, natural resources, and all sorts of other interesting facts. And when I say "interesting", what I mean is, "demented".

We used ipages to create his brochure and he has a blast playing with the fonts.
Here is Marcus' third grade project on our "Land" unit.

Read it and DIE!!!!
PS, it's a tri-fold, so you have to imagine how it would look folded up.

Wow, you make homeschooling look fun. Great job, Marcus.

When I looked at the brochure on the Scribd website, there was an advertisement just below it posted by Google for Wrongful Death Attorneys. If those guys come after you, you may be facing a fate worse than death!

I am pretty sure that he and Wylie would be thick as thieves given the chance.

I can just picture him giggling maniacally while he was putting that together. I bet it was fun.

OMG. That had me rolling! I have one of those too... although he is 12. So something is seriously demented about him since he is STILL making things like this. That was totally awesome. LOVE IT!

I think I will check out moving beyond the page... it sounds like soemthing my kids would like and honestly, this post got me thinking about it a month ago or so. Thank you for the boost comment on my blog. I agree... something has got to change. We are not getting anything done anymore.
