The Story of the World

After a lot of umming and ahhing through the spring I finally decided to buy The Story of the World Volume 1 and the Activity Book that goes with it.  I'm pretty sure I got these from The Book Depository.  Although these volumes are not universally liked within the Christian homeschool community I am more than happy with the books I've bought.  The Activity Book is absolutely packed with ideas and photocopiable resources which can be used with different aged children. 
Today we started making The Nile - whether the weather will allow the grass seed to grow or not I don't know, but the girls loved getting muddy and hopefully they will remember something about The Nile flooding in years to come ...
