My the months seem to be flying by quickly! We have finished up Ancient Egypt before Christmas which has been a fun review and Goosey was able to delve into it a little deeper than the last time when we covered this time period. We did a quick stop of Mesopotamia and then have been studying the Israelites, and Indus Valley. Goosey did a brief overview of the Indus Valley through this BBC site. She made a soap stone sculpture.
When she read about Mesopotamia she learned they were fishermen so she decided to weave her own fishing net out of yarn which has since been a nice decoration in our bathroom!
We spent a few weeks on Israel and have enjoyed learning about that. Goosey made a model of the tabernacle. We used this free model but CBD has several wonderful models to make!! She also made a life size model of a tent after she read about the many dwellings of the Israelites.
We took some time off in December to enjoy the holidays and started back up again a few weeks ago. We will be beginning Ancient Greece here shortly.
