Flooding the Nile River with beautiful blue water:
Unfortunately they had a little too much fun with the flooding part and we didn’t get to watch our grass seeds grow. But I think the learning was definitely in the flooding process here 🙂
Creating our own Egyptian Pyramids with sugar cubes (this was Angel’s favorite):
Sunshine really enjoyed it too … so after all of the sugar cubes had been ohhhed and ahhhed over by little fingers, I gathered them up into a sensory bin for later.
And making Sumerian seals out of air-dry clay like they did in the “old days” …
Which eventually turned into “Art Day” as the kids had a blast designing these creations:
So are we having fun with history? Um, yeah. Seeing the kids just light up as we work through these projects has been really just awesome. Having Angel tell me how much she LOVES homeschool … ohmygoodness, melts my heart. And Lovebug, who wasn’t as big of a fan at first, is coming around, thankfully. And Sunshine is just along for the ride … sometimes she likes to play along a little too much and gets upset when she doesn’t get a turn indefinitely. So I think she gives homeschool two thumbs up also.
Going forward, I may just try to do one homeschool summary blog post each week … I still need to figure that out so that homeschool doesn’t take over my blog, hehe. But I definitely want to document all of the fun (and ok, sometimes boring) things we are learning about!
