Lesson 79: Nehemiah
Since we’ve been reading Victory on the Walls, this lesson was a nice recap of the story of Nehemiah. It’s also a continuation of lesson 78 on Ezra.
Lesson 80: Pericles
After reading the MOH lesson, we watched a short section of Drive Thru History Ancients, Greece 2-2 about the Acropolis and Parthenon.
Lesson 80: Peloponnesian War
This is an exciting story of Ancient Greece that often seems lost to confusion about names and dates. We read the MOH lesson, and then watched this video on YouTube:
Chapters 64 adn 65 of The History of the Ancient World are perfect with this lesson.
For writing, we did Lesson 16: Spara in Ancient History Based Writing Lessons.
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 27 review quiz.
