Today, they need to draw a picture from Theseus and the Minotaur or of bull jumping and eat black and green olives. Tomorrow, we move onto the Myceneans.

We read several sections of "Pedros Journal" which is about a fictional cabin boy for Christopher Columbus, and a chapter of "Walk the World's Rim" which is about 3 16th century Spaniards and their slave who walked from Florida to Mexico via the Rockies (!) and stay with many different Indian tribes. And my son read 2 chapters in "The Corn Grows Ripe" which is about a Mayan Indian boy. (We are working on Sonlight Core 3). My kids are really enjoying reading together, although initially my son said he didn't want to learn about Native Americans, he wanted to learn about American history... I had to inform him that the Native Americans were here long before the Europeans came over!
