Story of the World Chapter 1:The Earliest People
We learned how the Nomads travelled from place to place looking for food. They lived in caves or tents as they travelled. When the Nomads reached the Fertile Crescent, many decided to stay. They established villages and began farming. This is the map Amelia colored of the Fertile Crescent area.
Here Amelia is listening to the SOTW audio and coloring the corresponding student page from the activity guide. We refer to the encyclopedia as we read to add visual reinforcement.
We finished off the week with a Cave Painting Activity!
So far, I LOVE Story of the World!
Amelia was playing outside and she found an "ancient artifact" in the yard. She was VERY excited!
