History lessons,

I am loving our history curriculum. We are using a book called History for Little Pilgrims. We made a timeline and after each lesson we add that period to it. Each lesson is a brief lesson exposing her to history at her level. We started back at the creation. For creation we made a paper mache earth. We also learned about what history is and how she is a part of history. Then last week we learned about Noah's ark. For that we made an ocean in a jar with a tiny ball in it to represent the art. These are lesson that she already knows but it is showing her how things all fit into history and our past. We moved on to the Towel of Babel and we created our own tower.

Samantha is taken after me I have always loved history. She has told me many times she loves history and is upset on the days we don't do it!

Our lesson tomorrow is going to be on Moses and we will be making our own stone tablets with the 10 commandments on it.
