History II: Kings, Queens, and Knights’ Fights
Does a young child need to be studying history? Absolutely! History is the most exciting of subjects, with all the strange and exciting stories of past cultures and events. History II focuses on the medieval period and the Renaissance and is structured for children aged 10-11. We'll discuss the feudal system, the scientific and artistic advancements of the period, and related topics.
History expands the mind, the intellectual world, of the child. Vicariously, they experience the life of a nomad, a Greek warrior, a medieval knight or lady, a Patriot during the Revolution, or any number of individuals we study together. More importantly, history roots us in time. It gives us the framework for the life which we live. People who are not rooted in life often seek direction from less reliable sources, and that is something none of us want for our children. They must understand where humankind has been, where we are now, and where we are heading!
