Sonlight® Week 23 and SOTW Chapter 27
What an interesting week! I may be partial to Ancient Rome, but the beginnings of it, no matter if it is a myth, were quite fascinating. The Etruscans were early Italians, and the book below, Brave Cloelia, gives a story of bravery during battles between the Etruscans and the Romans. The other book, The Roman Twins, chronicles the tale of Romulus and Remus, which a study of Ancient Rome is not complete without! The illustrations are whimsical and child-like. The author of this book also wrote Croco-Nile, a great book for the Ancient Egyptians.
This week we ventured out in a homemade notebooking page again, as I didn't have time or the gumption to print out some of the premade ones I have. We used the coloring page from Story of the World Activity Guide, the girls did a narration written on plain lined paper, and they drew pictures of what they learned during history. Check them out below!
