Our most interesting work and most of my photos centered around our history study this week. We began studying Ancient Egypt with the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt and the Myth of Osiris and Set.
When we focused on the Lower and Upper kingdoms of Egypt, we made the crowns of the White King, the Red King, and the Double Crown. The White Crown belonged to the king of Upper Egypt, and the Red Crown was the King of Lower Egypt. When Namer united the two kingdoms he wore the Double Crown.

A serious Double Crown King face.
When we studied the Myth of Osiris and Set. Caitlyn colored a depiction of the myth. We also read another library book on the Myths and discussed how the Myths often conflicted with each other and how the Egyptians believed in many false Gods, and not the one true God.
We also tried eating flat breads this week like the ancient Egyptians. Caitlyn was a big fan of the pita bread.
We continued our other studies and finished reading the chapter book Peter Pan this week. Caitlyn has also found renewed interest in her Tag books. I think she likes that she can “on her own” read more difficult books.
This week we also participated in a couple of activities. We met another homeschool family and tested out the new splash pad and played at the park for PE one day. Caitlyn also attended a great week long bible study hosted by another homeschool friend.
