    Would anyone share their favorite books from their study of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, any books we shouldn’t miss?  I have preschoolers to highschoolers. 

    Thank you

    Thank you Anna for sharing that link to your blog.  I had it bookmarked a while ago but had totally forgotten about it.

    This is great, piano girl, I’m saving this to refer back to for next year when we do Middle Ages.

    You’re welcome! I’m always thankful when another CM mom shares her ideas so I don’t have to reinvent the wheel. 🙂

    These are great suggestions!   Don’t forget to check out Beautiful Feet’s Medieval package.  We LOVE their book choices!  http://bfbooks.com/Books/Medieval-History

     

    Also, you may find some ideas through Sonlight http://www.sonlight.com/GC5.html

     

    I used Mystery of History as our spine when covering that period, adding literature.  Our plan is here…  http://reflectionsfromdrywoodcreek.blogspot.com/2012/06/mystery-of-history-volume-2-lesson-plan.html

    Thanks, greenebalts!  We are using MOH 1 this year and I found your suggestions helpful as I plan living books to go with our audio book.  It is goes well, we will do vol. 2 audio next year.
