In addition to the history reader, the accompanying Activity Books feature additional reading lists, map activities, and hands-on projects which students can complete to extend their understanding of historical figures, events, and trends.
Even though I am far from crafty, my children adores hands-on activities. While learning about medieval history this year, Curly Girl and Car Guy have
created an edible oasis when learning about Bedouins and Middle Eastern cultures,
constructed a catapult,
and baked a Roman pillar.
We're looking forward to a great year learning about medieval history!
