a new history study
we began to use The Mystery Of History ,Volume 1 today and it seemed to go well. the first Volume covers Creation -Resurrection, and theres tons of info and fun stuff in between, we will be studying the lineage from Adam-Christ, keeping a timeline- I love doing these alot- .
It is always fun to see when peole lived and what was going on in the world at the same time, such as When Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, Mulan - who was a real person- was a live and the Huns where invading China. When Johnna went to Nineveh, the Greeks where holding the first Olympics.
This seems to be a pretty through study, lots of Egyptian,- which Madeline just loves- Greek, Roman, Asian history, is covered, along with a brief touch on the Natives in the Americas and what was going on here. Theres a lesson Hannibal's march over the Swiss Alps with Elephants to attack the Roman Empire , and alot of other material I have found left out of other studies - and that I never had in public school-. The best part it is something for all of us to do together, theres research projects for Madeline and coloring pages for Adam, . I love being able to learn together, and not have to be in separate rooms or in different places.
