We finally made it through the Middle Ages in our study of history. We are done with Vikings and Knights. We have finished the Crusades. And now we are studying the Renaissance.
I love it when our curriculum gives us a break from our regular history books to read stories about some of the great people who lived during this time. These books are biographies of some of the most interesting people we have studies in the past few weeks: Queen Elizabeth, Michelangelo and Peter the Great.
