The Licking Area Homeschool Co-op met Friday, Nov. 8, at Rock Springs Baptist Church for our monthly classes. The session began with presentations for the annual History Fair. Eleven presenters shared their projects, which ranged from biographies to shipwrecks and the history of NERF products. After the fair, our regular classes got down to business and had lots of fun.  
For the littles (ages 4 to 6), it was all about apples and delicious desserts. Centered around the book "How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World," the class had lots of hands-on projects including grinding wheat, learning geography, and making and taking home fresh apple turnovers.

World War I was the focus of the middles’ class (ages 7 – 12).  Lapbooks were started as the kids studied the causes and effects of the war. To get a taste for the era, they sampled a 1900s macaroni dish and peanut cookies.   
The teen class learned Dutch cooking from Mrs. Mieke Ingram. Hutspot, a scrumptious dish of potatoes, carrots, onions, and meat, and Zoetzuur, sweet and sour muskmelon pickles, were on the menu. Along with learning how to prepare the meal, Mrs. Ingram was gracious enough to share information about her homeland. It was a fantastic time and I, personally, learned a lot about Holland.
