Over the shoulder

Malia's doing her some of her history reading here and DJ loves to look at the pictures and ask questions. The interruptions aren't always exactly what Malia has in mind when she lets him sneak a peek, but she's pretty patient. I'm getting excited about doing my history curriculum with him next year. It's called "Story of the World" by Susan Baur and follows a chronological timeline. Her activity book is full of fun ideas to make the history lesson come alive...anything from archaeological "digs" and ethnic recipes to craft directions to make armor!

That sounds like a fun history curriculum! I'm going to check it out. I use ACE but am always adding other hands-on things to our day as well. I absolutely love homeschooling!!! Thanks for the tip. :-)
