Mystery of History Lessons 64-66

Lesson 64 Pythagoras and the Temple of Diana

For this we read What's your angle, Pythagoras?  by Julie Ellis

First, he built a wall 13 blocks high and tried to get his 13 block high ladder to get to the top.

Practicing some more triangles.

The perfect angle!!

Adding up 2 smaller squares = big square

Lesson 65 Confucius

I made this yin yang symbol and had him color it.  You can download it here.

Lesson 66 Belshazzar and Cyrus the Great

Wrote with lemon juice and let it dry.

  3. Those were some of our favorite lessons, the Ancient Times. How fun!!

  4. I love how you bring the lessons alive! Are these ideas from the book? (We have the CD, but rarely pull out the printables).

    Visiting from the HMJ link up!

    1. A few activities are from the book, but quite a few are ones I have come up with or have seen around. Thanks for visiting!

  5. I love the idea of invisible ink for the handwriting on the wall, how cool is that!
