Homeschool Weekly - Week Ending 04-24-09

This was another great week for school.

By the way each of the names of the books we use below is also a link to the book. A place where you can see it and buy it if you want to. So if you are interested in the resources I use just click the link to see a picture of it and a place to purchase it if you want.

We covered from lesson 69 - 74

and that covered these subjects

  • Roger Bacon
  • Genghis Khan
  • Kublai Khan
  • Marco Polo
  • William Wallace
  • Robert Bruce
  • Dante
  • Aztecs
We also read about some of those subjects in:

In Choosing Your Way Through the World’s Medieval Past we did:
  • Adventure 12 - When Great Adventure Called (about Marco Polo and the Crusades)
  • Adventure 14 - Medieval Craftsperson
The boys love these stories. They are like the old choose your own adventure type books I read as a child, except they are about History. We read all the Choosing Your Way Through the World’s Ancient Past and now are enjoying Medieval.

In Medieval Messenger we read about
  • Two new inventions - spectacles and a crane
  • Genghis Khan
  • Superstitions

In Everyday Life: Middle Ages we read and did some pages from chapter 11
