Ancient Making and Ancient Reading

Last week we reached 3 BC - having come from 8,000 BC and before - we've learned of the man Jesus born under Roman rule; we've studied Cleopatra and her powerful influence; we've followed China's warring states and their 300 years of battles. So not only have we followed the deep history of our civilization, but we reach out a bit in Book Club. Although the middle schoolers have read The Odyssey and are preparing to read The Aeneid, our kids and I are reading an array of literature; including our 4th and 5th grade session on Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time and everyone's reading something on their own. -Miss Kati
