What a weird month! Well, I've gotten caught up on a tiny home project or two and upended everything in the process. I have stacks and piles and tools strewn about and no intention of cleaning it all up because I want to get other things done and why put the tools away? Not yet. Maybe I'll blog later on that one.
And here's our history curriculum! We're continuing with the Story of the World series. This one is the last in the series, covering the Victorian Era through the end of the USSR. As you can see, the reading level is pretty much as you would expect in a sixth or seventh grade textbook. It can get quite detailed. I lived through some of the stuff in the latter bit of the book and I don't remember many of the events!
The textbook can be purchased with a very thick activity workbook with maps, questions, and rather involved activities. This year, we haven't done many activities. But if you wanted, this book could double as an art and home economics curriculum because there are projects at the end of each of the 42 chapters.
|At this point, I'm not even caring about spelling as much as I have in the past. I'm getting lax. Only a few more weeks in the school year here anyway!|
