We’ll guide you step by step through a map of 15th century Europe, to keep it all in context. Then you can celebrate Christmas at Burgundy and paint some “Venetian Glass”. Eat some Swiss muesli and build an alpine cable car. Color a “thinking cap” to learn about the regions of the brain. And go on a guided tour of “The Arnolfini Marriage” by Jan Van Eyck. These plus dozens more activities and even more web links, ideas, tangents and books are in Unit 2-10 of the Layers of Learning Curriculum. This is a PDF.
In each Layers of Learning homeschool curriculum unit you’ll find a recommended library list, important background information about each topic, lots of activities to choose from for kids of all ages, and sidebars with a bunch more ideas including Additional Layers, Fabulous Facts, On The Web, Writer’s Workshop, Famous Folks, and Teaching Tips. Printable maps and worksheets are included at the end of each unit and may be printed as often as needed for your family or class.
