Preparing Hearts for His Glory: History

I thought I would do a little feature on each subject we are working on, so today I'll start with history. 

Our curriculum, Preparing Heart for His Glory, covers Creation to late 1900's and we are currently on week five.  So far we have read about Creation, Cain and Abel, Noah's Ark and the flood, life after the flood, the Tower of Babel, the Ice Age, the Egyptians, and the Babylonians. 

There is a story to read aloud each day, along with a project that starts at the beginning of the week and continues for three days.  There is one day for researching a topic using a dictionary or online resources, one day for vocabulary, one day for geography, and one day for timeline. 

The projects have included designing a shield of faith, studying warm and cool colors to paint a rainbow, creating a cave painting, making a clay map of the Mesopotamia area, and making a clay cartouche.

The curriculum is for ages 8-10, with an extension package up to age 12, I think. Our daughter is 7 but we thought she could handle it and it fits perfectly with what we are doing this year. She just doesn't work as independently as an older child would. We love it though!
