This week in history we moved from Ancient Egypt to focus more on Mesopotamia. We had some really fun times. The notebooking is working wonders so far and makes for an enjoyable time together, though we had a couple days last week where I realized I need to rethink the amount of work we do as a group...3 hours on 3 subjects is really too much for them in one sitting. So I'm going back to History twice a week, Science 2 days and Geography 2 days...that leaves me a little flexibility...and if they want to work more on one subject than another, more power to them.

Lillie completed the History Scribe pages for the Pharoahs as an independent project.
For our study on Hammurabi, we acted out courtroom drama using some examples of Hammurabi's laws...it was a hoot, to put it lightly. I've not laughed that much at my kids in a while. I found the idea for the activity here.
Here is a lapbook element for our notebooks where the kids made up their own laws.

We've been drawing our stories from Catherine Voss' Story bible, as well as having verse memorization punch cards. When they fill up their cards and can say all 6 verses perfectly, there is a prize in it for them...a Happy meal...which we have never bought for our kids! I know...negligence...but it's just never something we've sprung for, though they have had a Happy Meal or 2 courtesy of loving family. LOL
