While we started school a few weeks ago yesterday was the first day with our core program. This year we are using Learning Adventures: A World of Adventure. I’m really excited about this curriculum choice because with the exception of Math, everything is included. Also there are only a few select books that you *have* to have and the rest of the books you can pick and choose from as available at the library or your pocketbook.
To begin our “adventure” we are starting in Ancient Egypt. To enhance the experience we had a picnic of some foods that the egyptians might have eaten including: grapes, plums, apples and grape juice.
Later this week we’ll be doing a diaroma of the Nile complete with how it floods and helps the crops. I”m hoping to be sharing pictures and giving updates on it.
