This post includes all of the work we have done on Ancient Mesopotamia. I will be starting a new unit with my little ones next year, so this will be added to. Mesopotamia was our first foray into curriculum free study, and we loved it! The children are aged about 7 during the first four posts and about 9 in the last one.
Hammurabi Leadership Study and Law study: this was an intensive week long study into the leadership skills of Hammurabi and includes many activities, least of which was creating Mesopotamia dress up out of only a black bin bag and sellotape!
I am beginning to slowly go through world history again, this time with my little two. The following four posts I wrote for 123homeschool4me, so the links will take you there 🙂 They are chock full of activities and authentic food suggestions. This time I based their studies on the Gilgamesh trilogy.
