Home Education Week: Show & Tell

Today is day five of Home Education Week! Dana at Principled Discovery has set up a week of writing prompts and activities for anyone who wants to participate. The writing topic for today is "Show and Tell."



Show and Tell: Thursday, April 3
Show off those talents. Share a story, a special moment, a piece of artwork. Any accomplishment, great or small, is fair game.

I decided to share some projects from our ancient history unit last year.

Nathan wanted to try his hand at modeling a sphinx out of clay:

Jordan made an early ancient Egyptian shield and weapon:

Allyson made a replica of a falcon necklace:

Kathryn made a salt dough map of Egypt:

I'm afraid that I'm really, really bad at getting to Tapestry of Grace's wonderful hands-on projects, so I don't have much to show you. I guess I shouldn't forget our 9-month-long chicken mummy saga either. It's too long to bore you with all of it, but you might enjoy the grand finale.

Those projects are very well done! And of course the chicken mummy news story was great!
