Ambleside Online Rotation for January, 2016
This is a summary of the AO studies that come up for study in the presented AO rotations for the month of January, 2016.

Hymn Study:
January's hymn is "He Who Would Valiant Be" (to the tune of St. Dunstan's Tune).

Nature Study:
winter: Brook, river, ocean
We aren't focusing on nature study this year because my high school son is focusing on Chemistry.
