Story of the World, Volume 2

We started volume 2 today, having quickly finished up the last several chapters of volume 1 last week. It started with a recap of the end of the Roman Empire, so I wanted to do an activity to make it a little more fun. I chose the "Make a Roman Signum" suggestion from the Activity Book. It was quite a hit, and really didn't require too much. I think I'm going to try and do history crafts more often. The kids enjoy them and it seems to bring an energy into our homeschool that isn't otherwise there. The kids were in good spirits and joking quite a lot today. Of course they may not be related, but it's worth experimenting with. The boys had a little too much fun making their dopiest faces for the picture. Zion pretty much nailed the idea of leading troops into battle, though! 😀
