Ancient history gave us so many good projects I can’t even remember them all, from the paper pyramids to the model Roman road with pebbles to the day at the Roman baths.
Medieval history gave us a ton more good projects from our own coats of arms to cardboard castles to Chinese block printing.
American history gave us even more from corn husk dolls to silhouettes to games from different Native American tribes to little model wagons headed across the plains.
And now modern history… Um… Well… Hrm… I guess…
Popsicle stick guillotines? Beheaded Lego minifigs?
Well, I’ll take what we can get because the project pickings have been a bit slim this year. There have been some. When we studied Captain Cook, we did a mini unit on Australia and made some Aboriginal style art. We also did a couple of science explorations for the Scientific Revolution. However, I must say, so far, this period is less conducive to crafting.
