Beginnings of Ancient Rome - Romulus and Remus

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!

Peel the oranges, break into pieces (or slice), arrange on a serving dish, and drizzle with honey.  Optionally, add a light sprinkle of ground cinnamon.

Extras! Extras!
