Read Alouds for Ancient History
Now that classes have started and I'm officially a full time student again, one of the major ways I'll continue helping my mom with my little brother's homeschooling is by assisting in creating a read aloud list of "living books" or historical fiction books and splitting the read aloud time with her. I did this last year with American history but we didn't get through as many as we wanted, even though we created this intense and long list :) But this year I've finished the list and I think we're going to be much more successful, we've already read the first two and they were awesome. So in case you're interested historical fiction and/or ancient times or perhaps you too are a homeschooler and you happen to be doing ancient history, I thought I'd post the list of the read aloud novels we'll be doing!
Mesopotamia (Ancient Near East):
The Jewish People:
Africa (this one's not technically ancient):
Jews and Early Christians under Roman Persecution:
End of the Ancient World (this one might be more for a young adult age group, so not sure if we'll do this one with him, but I'll put it here just in case):
These last two span a wide range of history, so not sure if we'll do them at the end of the year or throughout little by little:
Is anyone else doing Ancient History this year? Do you have any other suggestions for future book lists?
