Layers of Learning Unit 2-2 is here!
The Arts: Illuminations
Color maps of the Barbarian Migrations and see how people moved and how Rome was replaced during this tumultuous time. Make a minstrels harp and listen to a story of Beowulf. Eat Irish stew and learn the most romantic story in Ireland. Build your own barometer and learn to forecast the weather. And make your own illuminated letter while you learn about the medieval art of book making.
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.
This unit can be used as a unit study, an idea book to supplement any curriculum, or as part of the Layers of Learning Program covering history, science, geography and art in a four year rotation.
