The Renaissance

So as mentioned before Stephanie is writing this story that is set during the Italian Renaissance. I knew we had a book about this somewhere in our library so finally tracked it down this weekend and brought it home for her. It is a Millken Press workbook on the Renaissance that I picked up a few years ago, along with ones on Reformation, Industrial Revolution, Civil War, etc.

Tonight Stephanie read about the Black Death – the Bubonic Plague- out loud  to the family and we all discussed this disease and how it was spread. We also had a good laugh about how some of the dead bodies were used. Catapulted into their enemies forts. Lovely way to spread the germs. Eric got a big kick out of that concept and said “I gotta make a flip note about this!”

Have you ever seen the giant microbes? They are so much fun! We have been using them for a germ study. One of them is the bubonic plague. Taliesin and Nathanael love them. I think their website is - if I remember correctly.

We have decided to start this journal to keep track of our children's life lessons learned in our homeschool journey. We believe that as parents we are accountable for our own children's education. It is up to us to make sure we prepare them to be active and responsible citizens, not a drain on society. So this blog will be a place where we can share our daily lessons and activities that we incorporate into our homeschool.
