Home Economics II LightUnit Only 1 - Baking Breads
So you want to learn to bake bread? Or pies? Plant a garden? Can fruits and vegetables? I can't think of better instructors than the Mennonite farm wives who do these things excellently day after day, season by season. Taking Home Economics to an advanced level, these four Light Units (altogether a one-semester course, with 3 weeks per unit) provide a wealth of information and details behind these everyday tasks. Designed so the student can work independently, these units are straightforward and easy to use, although not flashy. There are no color pictures, although there are some helpful black and white illustrations and an accent color. Textual information is detailed (such as descriptions of the various types of flours) and helpful (such as the different types of common garden pests). Each segment of textual information is followed by questions over the current segment as well as review questions. Each Light Unit has three sections of 4 daily lessons each with a quiz at the end of the first two sections and a self-check review at the end of the last. These help prepare the student for the final unit test. A pull-out section in the center of each Light Unit includes the final test (with answer key), and an answer key for the unit lessons and the quizzes. The Home Economics II package includes all four Light Units.
This is a complete course from Christian Light Education to teach girls how to cook and sew in preparation for running their own households. There are 10 different units (books) in the course, each with a different focus. The first four units cover food preparation. Unit 1 provides an introduction to the kitchen; Unit 2 discusses nutrition and food preparation; Unit 3 teaches about food shopping and kitchen organization; and Unit 4 delves into meal planning, preparation, and presentation. The next three units cover sewing, beginning with the basics and progressing through to detailed work. Unit 4 prepares you with the basics and getting started information; Unit 5 contains information on sewing for the home; and Unit 6 instructs in sewing for yourself. Then Unit 8 discusses the godly home and the responsibilities in managing it - decorating, cleaning, and maintaining. Unit 9 approaches the various stages of child growth from birth to the junior years, covering physical, mental, and spiritual growth. The last unit is a focus on the actual student, preparing her for becoming a godly woman and giving her guidance in understanding herself, God's plan, her relationship with God, friends and friendships, modesty, singlehood, and Christian courtship. Each book contains reading and comprehension and other activities to practice the skills in running a household. Answers included. - Melissa
