We are using Illuminations from Bright Ideas Press this year to help tie subjects in with our core which is The Mystery of History. I just wanted to share with you one of the things the kids did as a project while we were studying Leonardo Davinci this week.
This was part of the literature lesson. The book read was Leonardo da Vinci by Diane Stanley and one of the hands on projects was to draw a self portrait. My youngest took a picture of himself using his Nintendo DSi XL and used it to draw his portrait. I think he did a pretty good job too!
Do you use The Mystery of History or Illuminations? Share your link! I would love to come see what you and your children are learning about too!
