Ancient World History: Living Books and Resources

IMG_20190730_144139_409 (1)

From wrapping each other up in toilet paper when learning about mummies to building the Great Wall of China out of blocks, we’ve always had so much fun studying ancient times. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that we do a four-year history rotation (ancient, medieval, renaissance and modern). We’ve done two cycles of ancient history now. As with medieval history, when we first studied ancient history several years ago, I chose resources that were geared towards younger children. As my children got a bit older, I expanded our resource list.

    Oh, MaryAnn Thank You for this list! We are in ancient times right now, and enjoying it so much. We are using SCM as our spine, but at a faster pace! We did Ancient China, Middle East and South America last year with no spine and I just made it up as we went! Would love to know which of these was the favorite?
