History lesson with cookies?
I can at times be stubborn - really I can. lol! I had friends telling me for a few years how amazing Mystery of History was. I finally looked into it for this school year and wish I would have done so sooner. Growing up in the public school system, their view of history did not start when God created the world or in the Garden of Eden. In fact, those times in history are not even mentioned once in a public school text. So, for me there was history from the church's perspective, then from the bibles perspective. How to mesh them all I had no clue.
Well, Mystery of History has done just that. I just LOVE this curriculum. It can be used for young children through high school age children. There are activities at the end of each lesson that are age appropriate. While learning about Joseph, my kids were able to make cookies with multi-colored frosting which represented Joseph and his coat of many colors. Where else an you learn about true history, have fun AND eat cookies all at the same time. Here at home! What a blessing this curriculum is not only for our family but the many other families that use it.
