Week 7: Day One:

MOVIES:

WATCH DISNEY’S Tangled (PG) Questions to ask before watching the movie: What does Rapunzel want to do? Why do the King and Queen send lanterns up? Watch carefully when Rapunzel leaves the tower – how she folds her hair – length of hair versus distance to the bottom of the tower.

OTHER MOVIES:

RAPUNZEL (PG) This live-action version stars Jeff Bridges and Shelley Duvall. It is part of a series called Faerie Tale Theater.

****INTO THE WOODS  (PG-13) I take movie ratings very seriously. There are themes in this movie that are not suitable for childrenInto the Woods is a compilation of several different stories. It includes Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood. You may want to preview this movie before allowing your children to watch it. I have put two movie reviews here for you to decide if this movie is suitable for your child. I have watched this movie, and there are portions of it that I found objectionable. Roger Ebert: http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/into-the-woods-2014 Christian Review: http://www.christiananswers.net/spotlight/movies/2014/intothewoods2014.html

BIBLE

Rapunzel has a “dream” to see the lanterns. Talk about dreams – sleeping dreams versus Rapunzel’s dream (hopes and desires we have). This week we will be studying the life of Daniel. Daniel was a man chosen by God. God gave him knowledge and understanding. And Daniel could interpret dreams and visions.

In the Snow White Unit, we studied Joseph – talk about Joseph’s dreams. What is the difference between the dreams we have when we are sleeping and dreams as in the hopes and desires we have?

ALL LEVELS:

Work on Memorizing Bible Verse. Daniel 1:17 As for these four youths, God gave them learning and skill in all literature and wisdom, and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams. The ability to understand the spiritual meaning of dreams is a gift from God.

Describe Rapunzel’s dream from the movie Tangled? What was the outcome? Do we always get to have our dreams fulfilled?

BEGINNER:

Read the story of Daniel.

INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED:

Study on Determination – Each day look up verses that deal with perseverance and determination. Ideas: Philippians 4:13, 2 Timothy 4:7, Numbers 23: 24, 2 Chronicles 15:7, Psalm 44:18, Jeremiah 32:38-39.

CHARACTER STUDY:

Definition of Determination: Definition: firmness of purpose; resoluteness

Discuss after watching Tangled – What is Rapunzel determined to do? (Answers include leave the tower, see the lanterns, find her identity)

BEGINNER:

Read Definition of Determination and discuss with your child.

What things did Rapunzel do that show she is a determined individual?

Read the book The Little Engine that Could by Watty Piper. Talk about how the little engine was determined to make it up the hill. Refer to the book this week when your child says, “I can’t.” Each day reread or read another story from the Appendix.

INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED:

Define Determination. Practice Determination. Write Determined statements in your Journal. Each Day list one goal and steps needed to accomplish that goal.

CREATE-A-PLAN TO TEACH DETERMINATION: Examples of practicing determination: Have your child identify something that they would like to do, but doesn’t come easy for them. Set short and long-term goals. Help them develop a plan to accomplish those goals. See Plan WORKSHEET (Appendix)

GEOGRAPHY/HISTORY:

Rapunzel was written by the Brothers Grimm. Disney’s Tangled version of the story is believed to be set along the Baltic coastline between Germany and Poland. This week we will study Poland.

TIMELINE: Disney’s Tangled was released November 24, 2010.

Brothers Grimm publish Rapunzel 1812

ALL LEVELS: Find and Identify Poland on map, atlas or globe. Find the capital of Poland (Warsaw). Identify the Polish Flag. National Geographic Website

READING/LANGUAGE ARTS:

ALL LEVELS: Read the Brothers Grimm online version: http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/grimm012.html

What is Foreshadowing – define it. Definition: To show or indicate beforehand. The mobile in Rapunzel’s crib in the Tangled movie has the following figures: chameleon (Pascal), a rubber duck (Snuggly Duckling), Cupid (a character from the Snuggly Duckling), horse (Maximus), and bluebird (the bird that flies around after Rapunzel leaves the tower).

BEGINNER: Read the Brothers Grimm version of Rapunzel or a friendly version of Rapunzel from Appendix A. I recommend the version by Sarah Gibb

INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED: Read the Brothers Grimm version of Rapunzel.

MATH: 

ALL LEVELS: Questions on Day 1: How long does it take for hair to grow? ½” per month

How long is Rapunzel’s hair? 70 feet

How long would it take to grow 70 feet? 140 years

How old is Rapunzel? 18 years old

Could her hair be as long as it is?

SCIENCE:

This week we will study Genetics and DNA. We have a unique DNA print that helps identify who we are. In Tangled, Rapunzel “knows” that the lanterns have something to do with her, but she doesn’t know what. She is on a quest to find out what they mean and during her quest, she finds her identity. After studying DNA, you can do Blood Typing, some DNA experiments, and study the genetics of eye color.

After watching the movie, ask the following questions: Who was Rapunzel’s real mother? Who does Rapunzel look like? Does she look like Mother Goethel? What color are her hair and eyes? What color eyes does Mother Goethel have? Discuss other physical traits of Rapunzel and her real mother.

BEGINNER: Gregor Mendel: The Friar Who Grew Peas

INTERMEDIATE: A Book of True Genetics p. Beginning-p. 13

ADVANCED: Laws of Genetics: Chapter 1

Optional Activity: Blood typing experiment. Purchase a blood typing kit.

Another activity involves eye color. Both eye color and blood type are genetic traits handed down from parents to the offspring. In Tangled Rapunzel and her mother “look similar”, and she doesn’t look like Mother Goethel. While watching the movie point this out to your children. Look at baby pictures of your children and siblings, you and your children’s father. Look for similar traits.

Begin Usborne 365 Science Experiments p. 44 Living things and cells.

ART/MUSIC:

MUSIC: I have scheduled music selections for next week. Listen to the music of Tangled this week while studying and playing. If you would like to do some music this week, see the resources in the Appendix.

When Rapunzel leaves her tower, she runs, jumps, leaps, rolls in the grass, swings, etc. Go outside and act like Rapunzel leaving her tower for the first time. It is great to get outside and act like a kid. Even adults should do this sometime.

Health

ALL LEVELS: Discuss the Health Benefits of the Sun: Rapunzel was locked away in a tower. What would happen without adequate sunshine? I have listed some websites to explore the benefits of the sun. You may or may not agree with all the listed benefits, but it is wise to expose your child to some ideas that you don’t believe and give reasons why you don’t believe it.
