We took our PRE-TEST.
Lesson 10- Stonehenge
We looked at some video and pictures of Stonehenge.
We made Stonehenge out of Lego's.
Lesson 11- Early Egyptians
we watched a video link of Egypt
We watched THE PRINCE OF EGYPT
Lesson 12- Minoan Civilization
We played Leap Frog-- which the Minoans were apparently known for.
We read Theseus and the MINOTAUR.
We learned about Crete and how Plato could have been writing about the Minoans when he wrote about the lost city of Atlantis...
and FOR FUN... we watched
" a peck pop of love" (lol) (warning: there is a some potty humor, and stuff it is definitely PG)
(this one was neat because he actually mentions how the civilization is like the Sumerians etc. so the kids recognized the names of a few ancient civilizations.) ( warning-- there is a fair amount of mysticism if you can call it that.. the Atlantians get their "power" source from their gods..."
We made our MEMORY CARDS and Review cards
We mapped in our geography folders.
