Mardi Gras

My sweet friend, Ruth, inspired by the American Girl books Marie Grace and Camille, hosted a Mardi Gras party for our girls writing group + a bunch. A very fun time was had by all.

 I don't have pictures of the actual party becuase I wasn't there (major bummer!) but the girls made masks, ate home-made beignets created by Chef A.

and did a lesson on New Orleans and the history of Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday). Ruth created the study from the books and from her own interest in finding out more about the history of New Orleans.

A wonderful, simple but very rich, unit study. Thank-you, Ruth!!
