We studied Ancient Times for history this past year, using the wonderful resources from Bright Ideas Press: Mystery of History, volume 1.
I LOVE the Mystery of History and am really looking forward to studying volume 2 next year!
We study history together as a family, ages 3 through 11. Every afternoon while the baby (soon it will be babies) sleeps, I read a chapter aloud. I have some of the kids narrate back what we read about or we’ll orally go over the tests and quizzes that are included in the book. At the end of the year we added the main people and events to our timeline, which covers our upstairs hallway.
I like to have the older children do some written work as well.
Two of the kids (ages 8 and 10) did the Old Testament lapbook from Home School in the Woods.
My oldest did the accompanying notebooking pages, which were in the style of a newspaper (writing articles and advertisements).
There were also some great pages for illustrating some Proverbs.
