Notebooking with Mystery of History
I would love to get input on how others use notebooking with Mystery of History. We are in year 2, Resurrection to Reformation (I think that's what it's called-not in front of me right now).
I've been doing Mystery of History Vol. I with my girls. I have them notebook one thing a week from the three readings. (They are ages 8 &10. If they were older they'd do more.) I purchsed the ancient history notebooking pages and they really enjoy using them. Sometimes I combine copywork and a drawing from the Draw and Write thru History series if it correlates wth the lesson. Sometimes we do "bullets" and just write important facts on a page that has pictures. The pictures Debra includes on the page are wonderful. Sometimes we will just look through the pages and talk about the pictures that go with our lesson. I have had the girls summarize what we've learned and draw a picture. They have made lists of pharohs, dates, dynasties, etc. We have read Bible stories and re-written them in our own words and drawn pictures or used available Bible pages with pictures. I try to change how I have them notebook and I don't feel pressured to use every page that could be used. I hope some of these ideas help. I feel Debra's pages are an important part of our learning history.
