We just began our second book in "The Story of the World" history series.
Today we read about barbarians and Celts and the story of Beowulf and Grendel.
Since we rarely did the activities in the first SOTW book - I didn't order the activity book for Volume 2. But after about a week I decided that we ought to be doing at least some of the activities to add some fun, so I went ahead and ordered it. Glad I did.
Today both kids did a coloring page. If you didn't already realize - the boy isn't much into coloring or crafts. But he happened to spy an activity in the book I hadn't mentioned. Making a double bladed weapon. Right up his alley!
He was all set to make it on his own - but needed some help. He was quite pleased with how it turned out.
The boy has always been interested in history...his love began with the book "The Kitchen Knight" when he was only about three years old.
