So we started over in history this year, with creation and have moved up to studying Egypt and early Hebrew history. I like to do some hands on activities every term. The Hands and Hearts History Kits have great activities and I don’t have to find either the activity or supplies. The kits usually last me two cycles through history because we don’t do all the activities the first time around. For the first time, we’re making a mummy out of an apple and orange. I’ll post pictures every so often to see King Fruitenkamen’s progress. Just so you’ll know, the brown color is not the fruit rotting, it’s cinnamon we sprinkled on it like the spices they used with real mummies.
