Mystery of History- Vol 1.... Week 1

"If you would understand anything, observe its beginning and its development.


Mystery of History- Volume 1 Creation to Resurrection

We started with our PRE-TEST.

Lesson 1- Creation

I used the worksheet from MOH for Lesson 1
and we used this mini creation booklet

also will be using ideas and NOTE BOOKING pages from

Lesson 2- Adam and Eve

Used the MOH worksheet

Lesson 3- Jubal and Tubal Cain
used the MOH worksheet
and watched a few  YouTube videos on Iron pours... 
(turn off volume as there is some cursing that is hard to hear but still.)

We reviewed and made our memory cards-- which are 3x5 index cards that includes a summary of what was learned in each lesson.

We also started our Timeline... Each girl has one and I printed it from Guesthollow...
MOH Yahoo group!

We did our Week 1: Exercise
worked on the days of creation.

We also started our Geography folder for MOH...
our first lesson was the 7 continents (need to work on this)
So huge home school mom fail this week:
We were talking about Egypt and I asked the girls if they could name a river in Egypt.  NOPE.  I was kind of surprised Emily couldn't but anyway, NOPE.  So we went over the NILE river and then I asked about the Euphrates and the " blank", now these we HAD already mentioned AND spoken about them in Bible.  I was not that worried that they didn't remember them but what happened next...

Me: So can anyone remember two other rivers we already spoke about that are part of the fertile crescent?  The Euphrates and the "???"
Mary Faith: The Titanic?
Emily: NO! The Titanic is not a river.. it's an ocean!"
Um no it is NOT an ocean, it's a ship!  The TIGRIS is the river!


We ended with re-doing the PRE-TEST to make sure they remember.  I have also made note cards for each PRE-TEST so will use these for retention and go through them each week along with our

So then we were going over Anatomy the next day after you told me this story and guess what the upper arm bone is called?

the Hilarious. :)

I laughed so hard (b/c I was thinking of your story too) that I kind of hurt her feelings. Oops. It was a cute mistake. And it wasn't the 8 year old. :)
