The men never gave up.

Row, row, row the boat. The wind thrashed. Waves crashed.

Six men kept rowing. They dodged icebergs. They watched whales.

The men were cold and tired. They kept on. Their trip across the Drake Passage took 13 days.

But Mr. Drake never sailed it. Why? It was too dangerous. “It felt like being inside a washing machine,” said Colin O’Brady. But his team rowed all the way across. They made history! Who can still the sea? Psalm 89:9 says, “You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.”
Lesson #2: Map Skills. Teacher Janelle Cox offers some ways to help your children learn map skills (https://www.thoughtco.com/first-grade-map-skills-unit-plan-2081798). She suggests beginning with examples of real maps and explaining a compass rose. Other lessons include how to use different features of maps and how the students can make their own. Maps help us find our way. Remind your children not to fear. God knows when they sit down and when they rise up. He searches out their paths. Read Psalm 139:1-4.
