Studying History {Grammar Stage}

This week has been a blur with our starting of history. Last January we read the first several chapters of The Story of The World: Ancients (SOTW) and then again this March we started over here and there and have read through chapter five and we are enthusiastically discussing all-things ancient Egypt. We’ve watched everything possible on Netflix from King Tut to the mysteries of the Pyramids of Giza to all the fictitious of The Mummy and The Scorpion King sagas. (It appears there maybe a new series added this month of an Egypt lifestyle so I will have to explore that.)

We’ve also read more. And experienced Egyptology more.

AppleBlossom has started her lessons in the Veritas Press Self-Paced Online Lessons in Old Testament Ancient Egypt (OTAE) and is through Lesson five just having completed her first test. (Thanks to the 50% off sale!!)

We’ve snuggled and read the introduction and the first two lessons from the Mystery of HIStory Volume 1 (MOH) and now also the introduction to the Chronological Life Application Study Bible. We have the Archaeological Study Bible on a shelf nearby and have spent time pouring over the pages in the Kingfisher Atlas of World History and the Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World. (We have the Usborne Atlas of World History and the Kingfisher History Encyclopedia 3ed but I find I like our first two choices more.)

We’ve read multiple times through the suggestions of Wayfarers Ancients of Barefoot Ragamuffins Curricula (Wayfarers) in literature and we’re currently reading aloud the first in the Kane Chronicles of The Red Pyramid<\em> on the recommendation of Classical House of Learning Learning (CHOLL) lower grammar.

So this post has been in my drafts for a week or so as I was debating pictures. But nah, just accept my verbose. 😉
