decorating samples (see teacher book for more details, page 33)

not include materials that will be needed for the sewing project. Supply
list for sewing project will be based on what project child chooses to do.
***The amount of time we can spend on this***
Time allotted: 6 weeks (up to 30 days)
NOTE: This may be too slow a schedule if you are planning to complete all 10 Lifepacs in one school year. We are using 5 lifepacs per year, taking two years to complete the Home Ec course.
***Choosing a planner***
Use a 5 x 6 grid, thumb through book taking note of activities,
questions, tests, field trips, etc. and start filling in page numbers, try
