Lesson 76: Socrates
Along with the lesson on Socrates, the kids are continuing through their Usborne Books on The Ancient World and Ancient Greece. We have both, so I have enough to go around.
Lesson 77: Hippocrates and the Statue of Zeus
This lesson covers two different things, both of which are important and historic. Hippocrates had a profound impact on medicine both in the ancient world and today. Each of my kids copied the Hippocratic Oath for their copywork. And as the Companion Guide suggests, we are memorizing the seven wonders of the ancient world, including the Statue of Zeus.
Lesson 78: Ezra and Artaxerxes
As we continue to read Victory on the Walls: A Story of Nehemiah, we also read the MOH lesson on Ezra and Artaxerxes. I like the chart of Mesopotamian Kings included in the Compaion Guide. We aren’t trying to memorize them all or anything, but I like how it validates the trugh of the Old Testament narrative. Many of these kings are mentioned in scripture, and are well known to history.
We concluded this lesson with the Bible Project Video of Ezra and Nehemiah:
To finish up, we added these events to our timelines, did the mapwork in the Companion Guide, my 10 & 13 year olds added the corresponding sections to their labpooks (folder books), and everyone did the Week 26 review quiz.
