Logan & I spent a marvelous six weeks traveling through Rome. Our journey started with Charles Kovacs Ancient Rome and ended in Pompeii. I have to admit Kovacs was heavy at times,but his detail of Ancient Rome captivated us. One particular aspect that stood out to Logan was how the past helped shape so much of the future; especially when referring to warfare. We revisited Alexander the Great several times during our adventures.(much to Logan’s delight)
We agreed before the block that this was going to be reading intensive, very little writing and the final project would be the recreation of Mount Vesuvius. That was turned on its head the minute we opened Christopherus guide to Rome (let the drawing begin). I so appreciated Logan’s willingness to shift gears. When I added in some additional aspects, for instance spelling lists, verses and modeling there was no resistance. I have shared some of Logan’s work below; I hope you enjoy it! This block seemed very daunting before we started, but I am so glad that Logan’s enthusiasm created a lasting memory for both of us.
As a wise woman once told me.” it is not the material it is the experience”. Thank you Alison Manzer!
Have a wonderful weekend friends!
