I love what homeschooling brings to the table...
I remember when we studied Christopher Columbus in school it was pretty straight forward.
He sailed, he got somewhere that he didn't expect, he was rewarded.
Yadda, yadda, yadda... we all remember that.
Well, little did I know that there is a conspiracy theory over the whole event. Yes, it could have happened just like we remember, or it could have been that he was a spy from King John II of Portugal. Now that throws a new twist on the whole matter!
(Abram thought if it was the ocean a shark needed to be added to the mix!)Just a little taste of what we have been talking about around here for the past few days.
Along with the talk of Cristobal Colon (his real name) we made our own version of the ocean and our Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria.
This ocean water, I have to say is MUCH tastier than the real stuff. LOL
Yeah, gross things happens when food sets for too long...
You can almost see in the faces who didn't care about the worms and who kinda grossed themselves out trying to imagine the real thing.
the Phonecians are still one of the most vivid lessons they remember???
