This week, we started our journey through the Mystery of History and I love it.
You start the lesson with a short (one and a half page) reading and then move into hands-on projects. This homeschool history curriculum is easily adjustable to multiple ages as the projects are directed toward different age groups ranging from young children through middle school… maybe even younger high school.
My children love to color and create pictures from blank paper. No coloring books required. So, when I told them we were creating our own books to detail creation, I was instantly Super Mom.
Even better was the next day when I pulled out the play dough…
Making history come alive to kinesthetic (hands-on) learners can be difficult, but Mystery of History tries to make it easy. Creating our own animals and giving them names was quite fun. The names we created I do not even know how to spell.
One of the fabulous features of Mystery of History is the timeline you create… and next week I will be sharing that with you.
